Double Ribbon Washer Necklace!

While preparing for my Studio 5 appearance last week I came up with a new and easy twist on the original Washer Necklace! It uses two long pieces of ribbon instead of one and is slightly easier to enplane! If you are looking for a fun and affordable project to teach
a group of girls this is it!

Start by cutting two 4 feet pieces of ribbon. Tie your two pieces together at approximately 1 1/5 feet down the two ribbons. Add your first washer by taking the top ribbon and pulling it down its center and taking the bottom ribbon and pulling it up its center.


Add your next washer by weaving your ribbon the exact same way…top ribbon down its center and bottom ribbon up its center! See how it looks! They are now over lapping and you can see a fun new pattern.



Keep it up until you have added all the washers and completed your design!

Here is a slight variation… I weaved a washer and then knotted the ribbon before I added the next washer!


I love the way they look when you mix them with the original look! Now get to work and see what other techniques you can come up with!

Here is the segment I did on Studio 5! You can see the process in action!

    I think I have some washers leftover from another craft. I think I may just make it. Thanks for the tutorial.
