Poufy Pips in Brown and Peach

About this design:

I started this as a plain chenille necklace and wondered what it would look like if I added some pips - So I added a bunch and liked the look so I added 2 more bunches.

    How perfectly gorgeous! Just the perfect amount of pips. I do believe this would become my go to piece all year long.

    Thank you Pam. It’s always a little scary trying something out in the middle of a necklace. Sometimes it works – sometimes it doesn’t – Then you have to decide if you’re going to try to rescue it or just cut the strings.This time I got lucky.

    Pips. I’ve never heard that term, but whatever they are called they work perfectly. The colors go well together. It’s a piece you can wear for almost any occasion. Love it BLE.

    The chenille stitch is a fun open stitch.
