Was the ribbing from a knitted vest?  How did you keep it from raveling if so. Very cute recon. Love the yellow and black contrast.

It wasn't a knitted vest, it was just a cotton one from forever 21

this is so cute any chance of a tutorial I've got a ton of t-shirts that could you a make over like this

I'd really love to, but I'm afraid I'd put JOODITO out of business! (she sells similar items and they really are one of a kind)

from a sweatshirt I designed for my old short flags team (kind of like cheerleading)


along with a bandana (now lined on the inside of the collar) and some ribbing from an old vest, I managed to turn it into this:






Inspired by the great JOODITO.

This is awesome! I have to ask, though - does it ever catch on your hair? I have those really delicate and annoying hairs on the back of my neck, and I know I could never wear this necklace if it did.

It'd just stick to me like the band of my watch does, but nothing too bothersome.  Originally I wore it with my sweater with fur and my teacher told me to take it off so you could really see it. >,<

i saw the original post and consider the idea as well.  your necklace looks great!  what did your teacher think?  is it just cutting and tying or did it involve some sort of adhesive?

great job.

My teacher loved it. She was surprised to find that I was wearing my project instead of lugging it in like the rest of my classmates (who turned their items into statues, etc).  She took a second chance to examine the detail after class also..I hope I get an A >,<

As for the creation, I used tacky glue to give two layers, and just a simple needle and thread for the floral strips. It took a lot of elbow grease because threading through the rubber hurts the quality of the needle (I actually broke one trying to go through too many at once).

Thanks for your comment!

Inspired by miep's post (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=212312.0) regarding an inner tube piece (http://www.galerie-eewal.nl/html/kunstenaars/tolsma.html), and Christiane Diehl's work, with inspiration for a traditional boutonnière, I made this necklace for my final from 3D art class:



The necklace in action on its creator!


It's supposed to be worn a little higher, but this is the only picture my teacher took. Enjoy!

did they have to iron out the rubber to make it all straight?

Wow that looks very well made. Good job!

Purple Parrots

If anyone remembers the old Nickelodeon Game show, "Legends of the hidden temple" then you know.

Gold Painted Helmets and Screen Printed Tee.


I was on the Purple Parrots team and he was on the Red Jaguars.
I wouldn't team up with him   Wink
