I gave that quilted necklace idea another try and I'm really happy with this one. I used some of my new favorite fabric that Stephanie sent me. It lays nice and flat and is sort of weighted down by the corduroy layers. The only problem is when I bend over (which I do ever 2 minutes to pick up some toy or another) it flops into my face. Maybe if I had a more straight up and down sort of life.
