Materials:

Instructions:

  1. Draw a bib pattern on a piece of paper. This bib shape can be as large or small as you want for your bib necklace. You will be attaching this shape to the ribbon, so don’t worry about extending the sides up to fit around your neck. I would recommend a nice big shape to give you more creative freedom.
  2. Cut out your paper pattern. Double over your black felt and pin your pattern to the top of the felt. Cut out two bib shapes from the felt with the help of your pattern.
  3. Sew the two pieces of black felt together around the top and bottom edges, leaving the two, neck edges of the bib un-sewn.
  4. Cut your length of black ribbon in half. Place the cut edge of each ribbon inside the black felt about 1 inch. Stitch the neck edges closed, securing the ribbon in place.
  5. Now you are ready to embellish your black felt bib necklace. Find ideas below for how to embellish your DIY fashion bib necklace. For the best results, layer many different techniques and textures.
