Baby Shirt Necklace Tutorial

 I am probably one of the most sentimental people you'd ever meet. I have a hard time deleting sweet emails from my hubby; I have made several baby photo albums (out of the 1,000s of pics I've taken); and I can't bare to part with many of my kids' baby clothes. 'Cuz they just hold so many memories! I'm a sucker for nostalgia.

So, just because I couldn't throw away a sweet shirt of my daughter's (even though it had some terrible, yucky stains on the chest), I decided to make it into The Baby Shirt Necklace!
 I loved the pretty embroidery and knew it had potential. 
Look, it's so easy. 
Snip, snip. Dab some glue on the pendant backing, adjust the fabric, assemble the frame. Add a necklace. Simple.

Now go enjoy your pretty piece of new jewelry!

  2. Cute! I'm pretty sentimental too, and wish I had a baby blanket of my own baby/childhood clothes. Kid's clothes are so fun and colorful. Never seen an outfit necklace. This would be great for baby clothes, baby blankets, and tons of other things.

    Is it waterproof? I've been looking for photo charms that are waterproof forever, but can never seen to find one.
