How to make a multi chain necklace

Cascading chain necklace and gym bag

This is a closer view of the cascading chain necklace I showed in the previous post. You can see how I literally took whatever came to hand and jumbled it together to make the chain. The chain is a mix of thick and thin lengths, the rest is a combo of key rings, large O-rings and an actual ring. Plus the olive green velvet ribbon to tie at the neck.

The bag goes back to the early days of this post. You may remember me waxing on about how great it is for travelling or for the gym. For part 1 of the instructions click here make a gym or travel bag part 1 and for part 2 of the instructions click here make a gym or travel bag part 2

Most carry bags for the airplane or gym are heavy and shaped. These soft cloth bags squeeze into the overhead locker in a plane or gym locker easily. The pockets are perfect for glasses cases, keys, water bottles, gym access card or passports. I made my pockets with a zipper but it’s not essential that they close. An easier way to close the pockets would be to stitch velcro to the top. And because you make you own bag, you decide how big or small you want the pockets to be.

The Greenie Galleries at the top of this page have 100s of photos of older and newer projects showing multiple ways to make your own clothing and accessories. There are also ideas to recycle or upcycle.

See you soon.
