Fabric scrap pendants

I’ve been coveting some things on Etsy recently, haven’t we all?, and I started to think “I can make that!”, again, haven’t we all. At Michael’s I found these pendants that come with little peel and stick domes.

I just positioned the domes over scraps of fabric and then cut them out with my tiny sharp embroidery scissors. Then I stuck that bit onto the pendant with some glue dots.

Then I got brave. I picked up some pendants on clearance and figured I’d try some Modge Podge Dimensional Magic. My friend Joanna has tried, and struggled with resin so I didn’t even want to try that. I figured Modge Podge would be easier to work with. There were bubbles but getting rid of them was super easy. The problem came from the liquid soaking into the fabrics and changing the colours. This elephant was from the very edge of a piece of Japanese fabric and I thought it would make a great pendant. This is an Instagram shot so the filter played with it a bit, but in normal lighting the ‘white’ area is almost identical to the grey of the elephant. It was disappointing.

So now I’m back to finding a liquidless way to do this since that works best with fabric. Has anyone done this before? Know any tips or tricks?
