How to Sew a Teether Necklace for Mom- an easy sewing project that your little one will love!

How to Sew a Teether Necklace for Mom

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)

Materials needed:

Woven cotton fabric

Velvet ribbon

Wood teethers

Wood beads
