Pom Pom Bib Necklace

Last week, I had decided that the t-shirt purses were not enough for my nieces, so I also made them pom pom bib necklaces too. I found the tutorial here http://www.littlemissmomma.com/2010/12/pom-pom-bib-necklace-tutorial-lmm.html

She promised they would be easy and would only require material, a chain and hot glue. I LOVE hot glue! Well, not as much now that I have a hot glue blister from making those necklaces, but still. : ) 

She was right. They are very simple. The only problem I ran into was buying the wrong sized chain. I bought an 18 inch chain and you need to be able to slip it over your head. 18 inches was too small, even for my young nieces. They could barely squeeze them over their heads. I would recommend a 30 inch chain or glue the chain in such a way that you can use the clasp. Also, make sure when choosing your fabric to buy the kind that has the pattern or color on the back also.

  1. These are so cute! I was thinking about the chain dilemma...If you get a chain with links that can be pulled open, you could use jewelry or needle-nose pliers to add a clasp.
