I was working on a mermaid skirt (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=410256.0) for my moon pie's 5th birthday and, temporarily sick of sewing, I idly came upon some plastic rainbow star beads in the livingroom. I started rearranging them in various patterns, then decided to further distract myself by stringing them.

I decided I was going to make a rainbow star belt for a jumper I keep meaning to make her, but I soon realized it would be quickly broken as a belt. So I decided it could make a snazzy necklace.

I cut and sewed the bow out of yellow eyelet fabric. I used a cute decorative stitch on my sewing machine, which was sort of amateurish of me, but it was fun to watch the needle dance that business onto the fabric *hehe*.

The packaging is because I'm several states away for the summer, so I had to ship Momo's presents.

Such a nice necklace, those stars are so much fun.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
