To make this project, I enjoyed playing with some of my favorite things — colorful material, sparkly glass pendants, and the fabric crochet technique. I’m delighted to share the free necklace pattern, instructions and step-by-step tutorial with you.
Have you ever tried crocheting with fabric before? If so, I think a necklace like this one would be a piece o’ cake for you to make.
If you’ve never attempted this technique before, and you’d be interested in giving it a try, this is one of the quickest and easiest projects you could choose for getting started. It’s wonderful if you end up loving the technique, but you never know until you try it. If you’re going to end up hating it, I think it’s a good idea to make that discovery using a zippy-quick project like this one — before you spend one zillion hours cutting fabric strips to make a more time-consuming project like a rag rug or rag bag tote.
If you like this idea, I invite you to give the pattern a try.
If you choose to use red, white and blue materials for crocheting your project, you could create a necklace that’s perfect for wearing on July 4th, Memorial Day or any similar patriotic holiday or occasion. (Or really, any day — because those colors are classic and look great together any time.) However, there are endless different pleasing color combinations you could try, so you can have bunches of fun experimenting to find ones that express your style best.
Pictured here, we have a necklace that I made using red and white batik fabric plus blue and silver wire-wrapped pendants. All of these materials work well for an Independence-Day-themed jewelry piece.
