Show Off Your Embroidery Skills With a Stunning Pendant Necklace

Take a look at your closet: what have you already embroidered? It’s likely that a T-shirt, jeans, and maybe even monogrammed pajamas are in there — and that’s great. But here’s an off-the-T-shirt way to showcase your stitching in style.

Embroidered Pendant

Level: Easy

What You’ll Need:

  • A small square of needlepoint canvas
  • Small embroidery hoop
  • Air-soluble fabric marker
  • Embroidery floss
  • Embroidery needle
  • Fabric glue
  • Paint brush
  • Felt
  • Scissors
  • Necklace cord
  • Instructions

    1. Hoop Up and Design

    Hoop up your fabric and, if you like, draw out your design. We used a geometric triangle design, but you can use your imagination.

    2. Start Stitching

    Stitch your design using colorful embroidery floss and a needle.

    3. Trim It Down

    Trim around your design, leaving a little bit of buffer around the stitching. Dab a bit of fabric glue on that buffer, on the wrong side of your design. Fold the edges in (this makes your necklace a bit sturdier).

    4. Add the Backing

    Cut a piece of felt to the same size and shape as your embroidered design. Use hot glue to stick the felt to the back of the piece — and be sure to tuck the ends of your necklace cord in there, too.

    5. Attach a Clasp

    Finish it off by adding your favorite kind of jewelry clasp on the end of the cording.
