Just about everybody has an affection for the place they call home. I’ve lived in the beautiful state of Georgia for my entire life. While I’m not pushy about it, I do love my state an awful lot. This awesome little no-sew project helps me celebrate my beautiful home state using my newfound craft love: Phoomph! If you’ve been looking at any of my articles for the past few weeks, you can see I’ve gotten a little obsessed with this stuff. Well this project is quick, easy, and so very satisfying! Here, we, go!
First things first! Print out your template here: Georgia!
Water- Soluble marker
32” long x 1.5” wide scrap of fabric
2 contrasting fabric scraps (enough to cut out your state)
2 Grommets and tool
Step 1: Using a tracing table (or a window that gets good sunlight will do
just fine!) tape your template to the surface and trace the outline onto
your fabric using the water-soluble marker.
Step 2: Peel off one side of the Phoomph and lay the tracing down,
making sure to avoid getting any bumps or wrinkles in the fabric.
Step 3: Repeat step 2 with your contrasting fabric on the opposite side.
Step 4: Carefully cut out your shape.
Step 5: Apply two small grommets at the top as shown.
Step 6: I chose to fold my necklace in half and do a quick running stitch
along the edge. This step is not necessary and you could always just cut
your width at ¾” instead of 1½”.
Step 7: Thread your necklace through the grommets and you’re done!
*Don’t live in Georgia? You can easily create this project for your own
state by doing a quick google image search and tracing the outline in the
Happy Phoomphing! Yeah!
