DIY Valentine Necklace | Sewing Craft | Apostrophe S | Sew Much Love

Hey everyone, this is Jill with Apostrophe S. Today, I’m going to show you how to make our new Sew Much Love cross-stitched necklace. It’s got this little bejewelment on the bottom and it’s cross-stitched on this wood disc with a felt backing, okay? So let me show you what comes in this kit. You’ve got the disc that’s got the design on it. You’ve got the jump rings, the little bejewelment, the backing. You’ve got the embroidery floss, the chain, a couple of needles, and then you’ve got some patterns. So you can see that first one that I showed you is, whoops sorry, is this pink colored heart, but you can also do it in purple, or you can see we’ve got a two-toned purple. We even did a striped one. So there’s a couple of different choices, or you can really even make your own. We’ve given you this option on the back, where you can draw out your own design and do your necklace that way. Okay what you’re going to need from home is you’re going to need some scissors to cut your embroidery floss. You’re going to need some needle-nose pliers or some jewelry pliers. These are jewelry pliers that have kind of the rounded nose, but needle-nose works great. Then you also need a hot glue gun and I’ll show you for that in a second, what you need that for, in just a second.

Okay, so what we’re going to start with is embroidering actually the disc, so I’ve threaded my needle. Because these needles are so little, what I would recommend, I think you can see this here. I’ve used a piece of Scotch tape and I’ve put that over the end of it and smoothed it out and then cut it on an angle so it threads right through the eye of that needle really simply. Now if you’ve ever done cross stitch, you can see that all of these little holes, really we’re going to be making little squares, because four holes make a square. You figure if you look at it like this, you’ve got a square. Okay? So say that I’ve got my holes set up this way. I’m going to come up through this hole and go down that hole. Come up through this hole. Go down, so that I get a whole series of diagonals. Then when I come back, I’m going to come back on this hole and go down this way, so that I cross them all across. But I do it in a row. Okay?
