DIY: Fabric Pendant

FABRIC PENDANT

Looking for more unique ways to use up my fabric scraps, I turned to jewelry making.  This project is very rewarding and does not require any jewelry making skills. 

Use it as a unique gift for a girlfriend’s birthday, or a simple Mothers Day gift.

Carefully begin filling the pendant with the glaze.  It is thick and stays in place pretty well. Allow your pendant to dry for at least 12 hours on a level surface.
