I'm sure there are other ways to make this, including poking holes in the felt or using grommets. But I wanted to do something that wouldn't compromise the felt. So I chose to sew everything into the pendant. Once I had my felt piece, this project took less than 30 minutes!
Here's what I used:
- jump rings
- necklace chain
- stiff felt
- eco felt
- embroidery floss
- jewelry pliers
- jewelry wire cutters
My felt fox was originally made with two layers of felt.
For the necklace, I decided to add a center piece of stiff felt and an extra layer of eco felt for the back. I chose to use the stiff felt in the center just to add a bit of structure. You could also use a piece of card stock paper. Just cut out the pattern and then size it down a bit so it doesn't peek out of your final piece.
Once you have all your pieces, sew two jump rings at the points where you want the chain to meet the pendant.
Then add a couple more jump rings on either side so they will hang outside of the pendant once it is sewn.
Next, use a basic stitch to sew all of your layers together. Be sure to sew around or through the jump rings. Don't lose them inside of your pendant!
Measure out the length of the chain you wish to use. Use your wire cutters to cut the chain in the center and add jump rings and clasps.
Add your chain to either end of your pendant and you're finished!
This is such a simple project! If you decide to try it out, post your link in the comments so I can check it out!
