I have been seen a lot of these necklaces around stores and wanted to make one of my own. I guess you can say I was INSPIRED!
Bought some wooden beads for about $3 at Joann's fabric & craft store.
I also bought a few patterns that were cut 1/4 of a yard for $1 from there too.
I cut each fabric into strips about an inch thick.
I was going to use a toothpick to push the fabric through the bead, but found that just twisting the ends of the fabric was just as easy :)
I tied knots in between the beads & also braided the 3 different strip of fabrics together....
At the ends of the fabric, I used ribbon clasps.
