How to Sew a Teether Necklace for Mom- an easy sewing project that your little one will love!
Whenever I’m holding River, he immediately zones in on my earring or necklace and tries to put it in his mouth. Rather than constantly pulling my jewelry away from him, I thought I’d make something that he can put in his mouth…and so this Teether Necklace was born! River loves this necklace! It’s the first thing he reaches for when I hold him. The wood ring is perfect for chewing and the wrapped fabric beads give him something to play with.
This necklace is a fast and easy sewing project that any beginner can do. It has a cotton body with velvet ties. It’s lightweight and comfortable to wear.
(Note- this Teether Necklace is intended for an adult to wear. Due to the long strings, an infant should never be left alone with this necklace)
Woven cotton fabric
How to Sew a Teether Necklace for Mom
Cut a section of fabric that measures 34 inches long and 3 inches wide.
Fold the fabric over- right sides together– and stitch the side, creating a tube.
Turn right side out. Turning tubes right side out can be a pain, but this tool makes it so easy!
Fold the fabric in half lengthwise and stick it through the ring.
Insert the ends of the fabric through the loop and pull to tighten.
Insert a wood bead into the fabric tube and make a knot to secure.
Add a few more beads, making a knot before and after.
Tuck the ends of the fabric inside about a 1/2 inch. Cut the ribbon it measures 16 inches. Insert the ribbon and tuck it down 1/2-1 inch.
Fold the fabric over and stitch down, securing the ribbon inside. Repeat on the other side.
Finally, put the necklace on, pick up your baby and watch him/her immediately go for it!
