What you need...
  • NECKLACE Three cotton fabric prints; 4cm x 100cm, 10cm squares, Large, medium and small buttons, Sewing thread

  • TOOLS Needle, Pinking shears
  1. Plaited Necklace - 1. Tear off three 4cm x 100cm strips of fabric and clip them together at one end. Fix to something solid and plait the fabric lengths together, folding the strands so that the right side is facing outwards. Stitch the six ends together, either by hand or using a sewing machine. Once you have finished, carefully trim the ends.

    2. To make the flowers, download the petal template from the link above. Fold each fabric square in half three times and pin a petal motif to the point. Cut along the curved edge using pinking shears. Remove the template and trim along the creases, within 1cm of the centre point.

    3. Layer the three fabric squares together with the right sides facing upwards. Fold three times and stitch through the point to hold together. Unfold, then sew three buttons to the centre, placing them from large to small. Stitch the finished flower across the ends of the plait.
