Vintage Fabric Ruffle Bib Necklace

Last week my mom gave me a box full of vintage fabric scraps. She didn’t realize how much I would love those scraps, in fact she told me if I didn’t want them I could just toss them in the dumpster. I tried to explain that these scraps are too beautiful to be dumped in a dumpster. I spent a day machine and hand sewing 30 flowers from the scraps. They make the most beautiful fabric flowers. When I called to tell my mom thank you, I asked her where the scraps were from and she said they were my Grandmothers, which makes them even more special to me. I am excited to make a special broach for each of my sisters for Christmas out of our Grandma’s fabric.

This bib necklace connects near the flowers with a vintage button and loop. I gathered fabric for a ruffle and backed it with some velvet so its soft against your skin and attached rhinestones to the ruffle for some sparkle. The 3 flowers have a piece of flowered lace behind them.

What are your thoughts?
