Accessorize your neckline with a sewn necklace made from fabric, chains, and encased sequins. Crushed panné won’t fray so it’s easy to sew, and chiffon adds a bit of texture to the piece. Make the entire necklace from one color, or choose several coordinating colors for a more dramatic look.

Create the rosettes by gathering a fabric circle around a sequin. Sequins were used to add a bit of sparkle to the sheer chiffon pieces. You can also use beads to create the center; just make sure your fabric circles are large enough to gather behind the bead to cover it entirely.

What You'll Need:
Buckram
Chain, 3⁄8-inch-wide
Chiffon fabric in white and cream, 1⁄8 yard
Crushed panné in white and cream, 1⁄8 yard
Fabric glue
Gold sequins, 3⁄8-inch-wide
Hand needle
Pinking shears
Ribbon, 3⁄4-inch-wide, 5⁄8 yard
Rotary cutting mat
Scissors
Thread
Template
Optional: Olfa circle-cutting rotary cutter

Make the rosettes
Create the rosettes from fabric circles. For the blossom, gather the circle around a sequin. You can adjust the rosette size by changing the fabric circle and sequin size.

1. Cut the fabric. Cut out circles from the panné and chiffon. The Olfa circle-cutting rotary cutter makes cutting fabric circles easy and quick. From each fabric, cut 10, 2 3⁄4-inch-diameter circles and two, 1 7⁄8-inch-diameter circles.




2. Sew the rosettes.
Place a sequin centered on one fabric circle’s wrong side. Hand-sew a running stitch about 1⁄8 inch away from the sequin. Don’t knot off.




3. Gather the rosettes.
Pull the thread to gather the rosette around the sequin. Knot off the thread to secure the gathering.
