Fashion expert Orly Shani demonstrates steps to make beautiful fabric necklaces!


  • Stretch fabric
  • Wool felt ball
  • Fabric scissors or rotary cutter
  • Sewing machine
  • Straight pins
  • Safety pin


1. With your fabric folded over, set your felt ball inside the fold, snip about ½” from your felt ball to account for your seam allowance.

2. Cut a long rectangle at this width. *The length can be whatever you desire. *

3. Sew together to create a long fabric tube.

4. Turn the fabric tube right side out.

5. Leaving a generous tail, tie a knot close to one end of your tube.
*The tails will act as the closure for your necklace so leave what will be comfortable for you to tie at least. *

6. Drop your first felt ball in, pushing through to the knot with your fingers.

7. Tie a knot.

8. Repeat steps 6-7 until you’ve added the number of beads you desire.
*Twist your knots to the same angle because they will eventually start to curve and create a “front” to your necklace. *

9. Tie your necklace on around your neck and enjoy!
