I love the chains, though they're a bit big for my taste. I DEFINITELY want to try this wish small shampoo bottles or other means of plastic rings. LOVE IT!

This may be a n00b question, but the shampoo bottles are inside or? they look very round, and in my experience shampoo bottles are flat xD

does it have to be shampoo bottles or do you ever use plastic bottles etc. ?

I ADORE the chains ^_^ I would like to do something like it, just with various size rings (unless ofcourse you mind me copying you)

I love your creativity  ^_^

thanks! Smiley and feel free to try it yourself!

the shampoo bottles are indeed inside the fabric, I used Pantene bottles, and sometimes they ended up more round and sometimes more oval, depending on the bottle I guess. I also used a contact solution bottle which is definitely round. I can't wait to see what you make!
