still in a necklace-making mood

Felt Charms
A few years ago I took a class from Elsie, and one of the projects was making felt charms. That may have been what planted the idea for the "how" in my head, but the "why" for this particular moment of crafting came from spring. I realized that yesterday was the first day of spring and that I needed to make something for this most-welcomed occasion.

Bright green leaves came to mind, and so I thought that some felt leaves as a necklace would be a fun thing to make a wear. I added them to a ball chain necklace, because I do love them for their versatility.

But why stop there? How about a felt tassel that I could exchange for the leaves on the same chain? (I saw this tutorial for a leather one, but felt is more my style! I stitched instead of gluing...)

That's not all though! I also sketched up a few more ideas for other things that I could hang on this same chain, and I'll be making them along the way. It's fast becoming an entire necklace system!
