Adelaide Meet 23rd June - Fabric Button Necklaces!


image from Very Purple Person

Need a necklace to coordinate with your outfits but can't find just the right one? Then why not make your own!? And whilst you're at it, why not make some matching earrings. Okay, maybe you mightn't want to get too matchy- matchy. These necklaces would make great gifts for yourself or a friend so bring your fabric scraps and get button-ey with us. We promise they are super easy!

When: Wed 23rd June Time: 7-9:30pm Where: Box Factory - Adelaide Community Centre, 59 Regent St South Adelaide Cost: $2 donation to the Box Factory Numbers: We have room for 24 Owls - the first 24 to RSVP are IN! What to bring:
  • small scraps of gorgeous fabric to cover the buttons
  • fabric scissors and fabric marker/pen/pencil
  • small-nosed pliers (we will have some there for you to borrow if you don't have any)
  • hot glue gun (we will have some there for you to borrow if you don't have any)
We will have the buttons and tools, necklace chain and all the other bits and pieces for you to use on the night to make your own necklaces. We will even have the materials for you to make matching earrings! Kits will cost $2.50 per necklace and $1.50 per pair of earrings.

Please note at this stage we will have 25 necklace kits and 20 earrings kits available on the night. If you would like to make more please contact Gillian on silly.gilly@bigpond.com

These button necklaces are super cute and super speedy to make. It may pay to bring something else to work on as well as we don't want you twiddling your thumbs with nothing to do once you've finished your buttony work!

Not into making jewelry? Feel free to BYO craft.

If you are keen to see the instructions before we meet - do head over to Very Purple Person.
See you all then!
