Limitless Strands Necklace

As soon as I saw this tutorial, I knew I had to make one for my sister's birthday.  She's always wearing super cute jewelry when I see her, most of which she makes herself.  In fact, most of my jewelry is from her.  Lucky me! 

Reading through the instructions, I thought it would be simple enough to make.  Simple perhaps, but I vastly underestimated how long it would take, as is typical for me.  Turning the ribbon tubes right side out took what seemed to be a ridiculously long time, the satin ribbon kept snagging on my fingernails, and I was concerned about some pulling at the seams.  I used a 70/10 universal needle to sew them, but maybe I should have used something else?  It's far from perfect (Sorry, J!), but I'm hoping this is a case where the problems are only noticeable if you really inspect it closely.  So if you see her wearing this, don't get all up in her face to check it out, okay?  Thanks.  ;)


  1. I think you did a fabulous job. Your sister will be proud to wear it!

  2. Modest to a fault. It *is* perfect, and as always I am thrilled to be on the receiving end of anything you make. Love ya!

  3. You did great! I bet Bev would say so herself. I loved her version so much and was so happy to win one. I wear it all the time. I bet your sister loves hers too.
