i know, this is not suppose to be under clothes, but there are soo many people here that only check the clothing and dont check the other things...  and i was imaging all the tons of scraps that would be wasted!!  no, i cannot permit such an act of crime!

save your scraps, my dears!!!
cut LOADS of them (any colour, as many as you like and of different textures and types of fabric) in a fat 8 shape and put 4 together, one on top of the other.
fold these 8 shaped scraps in half (now they dont look like an 8 anymore, they look like an O) and with a fat neadle and some strong thread , thread them together poking them smack in the middle.  ATENTION -> on the begging and on the end of the string, you will have an individual 8 shaped rag folded in half (or 2 if your fabric is very thin), not 4 together, ok?

after you made it as long as you want, get a piece of ribobn, something like a shoe lace or anything else long enough for it to be closed both ends (closed in a circle).  fold it in half and wrap the rags on each end of your rag strip around your ribbon (like a fortune cookie) and stitch it so that its secure.  if you prefer, you can add a clasp or have two ribbons so that you tie it around your neck or wrist.  on the bottom picture i am wearing it short, but it can also be worn long (i tied it shorter on the back)  thats all folks!!  

coments will be apreciated!!!  questions too![/color]

What a cute idea. Great thought on the 8 shaped scraps. Super work and a lovely piece of jewelry!! So many bags of scraps that I hated to throw out have new possibilities!!

Wow, this is so inspiring! I'm such a scrap whore. I save all the little pieces even though I rarely find something to do with them. As soon as I saw this I just had to give it a try. Check out what I've got so far--

I'm trying to use lots of bright colours. The great thing about this project is you can make the necklace to match the clothes that you've already made out of the same material.

Mine is a little thinner than yours. I had a lot of thin strips of scrap fabric that I wanted to use up. I kind of want to make it a long necklace, but it tends to shed little threads and I don't want those to end up all over my shirt. Hm. We'll see.

Haha, thanks for the inspiration!
