1, Cotton Lace Trim(Joann's Fabrics) or crochet your own
2.Ribbon 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 inches wide
3.O-rings Beads Hooks or baby button closures or chain closure, etc
This was made a while ago and I still haven't finished the closure. I've been safety pinning it on-yes, I will finish it someday. I bought some cotton lace trim that had a very nice pattern for hanging beads. I then machine sewed it on to a 3 inch wide blue ribbon. You can hand sew this too.
I then added beads to the open links on the cotton lace using 0-rings. That was it. That's how easy it is. I plan on using hooks for my closure -the kind used in bras or maybe use my plastic snaps. You could also use those baby metal snaps but make sure you reinforce the ribbon or you will tear it up. You could use ribbon ties or clasp and chain method.
