If you're ever bored of an afternoon and fancy making something using things from 'that' box(drawer/cupboard/tin/etc) full of things that you promise you'll use one day, then I recommend http://ragstocouture.com/ for inspiration. I wasted a lovely evening going over the projects, taking each one in and one in particular caught my eye:

http://ragstocouture.com/chain-necklace-diy-using-scrap-chains/

Cause for some reason, I just don't throw broken/unwanted necklace chain away. I just bag them up and slip them away in my box, promising that I'll do something with them, one day. Finally that day has come!











Very pleased with how the set came together, took a couple of tries to get the style right, but it all came together quite nicely.

Now, fabric chain necklaces, they sound quite fun to make!
Hope you have a happy Tuesday!

Thanks both!

And that's your blog! Its amazing! If it were a book I would say I read it cover to cover in a night, but it's a blog, so... First to last post in a night?

Just completely brilliant! (and like I said, excellent excuse to use some bits from 'the Box')

Thanks again
