Handmade necklace by moi!

Isn't this necklace festive?  I certainly think so.  It took me an afternoon to make using felt, embroidery thread and a length of wool. I was inspired by this tutorial but as you can see, hers is much nicer.  What I am learning is that I need to think and plan things through before I dive into them.  Even if I am happy with the end result!

I folded over a piece of red felt and cut out a rectangle and a smaller circle.

I embroidered one piece of each and then stitched the plain felt onto the back to cover untidy stitches.

I made little loops with the embroidery thread and threaded the wool through.

Waddya think?
