Embroidered Pendants Please!

Just in case you managed to miss this project - I thought I'd share it with you. I am a long time supporter of interesting pendants, embroidery, and handmade accessories so I'm sure you can see why I feel for this craft from paper n stitch:

Isn't that neat? Turns out you can buy wooden disks with loads of holes from oh love lovely so you can make your very own embroidered necklace! Then all you need to do is find some favourite embroidery floss colours and get creating! The necklace on the DIY site has a deer on it, but I must say the random stitches and colours from the paper n stitch blog are quite charming! I'd love to make my own holey pendant out of polymer clay and customize the necklace even more - perhaps make it rectangular and stitch in some grey and gold chevron stripes? OoOo! How thrilling! What do you think?


  1. Sounds like a very quick and satisfying project. Sign me up! Right after I shovel a million more tonnes of snow...

  2. It looks nice. It would make a nice key chain. Mom
    PS our furnace is finally fixed!!! It have been a long hail as they had the wrong part shipped in at least twice! Now to clean up the mess, heck, it has waited this long an other day or two wont matter.

  3. Making a pendant from polymer clay is a genius idea! I am warning you now, your idea has officially been stolen by me ~_^

  4. These blank pendants can also be purchased in Canada in five different shapes here

    I bought some a couple of years ago and did these:
    They are fun and super-quick to whip up!
