STEP ONE

Decide how long you want the necklace to be and cut fabric about 10 inches longer than you desire the necklace to be. (For instance, we cut a 40-inch strip of fabric for a necklace that measures 30 inches.) The strip should be about 4 inches wide depending on the size of your marbles or stones—be sure to leave a ½-inch seam allowance.

STEP TWO

Fold the fabric in half with the wrong side facing out. Sew the two loose edges together down the length of the strip, leaving a ¼-inch seam allowance.

    I really do like this as an easy made accessory and it could even be used as a weapon. Pretty cool.
