1 fat quarter
10 wooden spheres 1" (I got mine at hobby lobby in the wood crafts section)
Step 1: Cut your fat quarter into 4 strips 4" wide and the length of the long side of the fat quarter.
Turn the tube right side out.
Place a wooden sphere in one end of the tube and push it all the way to the knot you just made. Tie another knot on the other side of the sphere so it is held tightly in place. You can use wooden beads if you prefer, but the spheres were cheaper.
Continue putting in the spheres and then tying knots until you have all ten tied in. Make sure that you put five on each side of that center knot so it's equal.
Here's a close up. This will allow you to lengthen the necklace if you want.
Now take your loose end and wrap it around the other a few times (I think I did 6) and then tie it to the opposite side right next to the other last knot.
You're all done, enjoy your fun new necklace. Your baby sure will! Here's another one I made, I didn't do the twisting at the top, but I think that it looks much better if you do.
Ada took to it right away and has claimed it as her own! It's a stripey fiesta!
