I just made this "bib" necklace using the Bigz Shot and the #2 Circle Die. Please, excuse the photo (I used the cell phone). I used two types of fabrics: organza and satin. I used a lighter to melt the edges of my circle in order to prevent fraying. It is important to use synthetic fabrics and not natural fabric (natural fabric tends to burn). I also keep a big bowl of water around when I am working with the lighter, just in case my fabric catches on fire. Finally, I had some jewelry from the 90s that I re purposed it by adding it to this necklace. You could attach the "bib" part of the necklace to pearls, beaded necklace, and or even a ribbon. I chose to attach it to a chain to contrast the dainty and feminine with bold links and masculine. It was super easy...the melting of the edges; however, takes some time and patience. You could also make hair accessories, bracelets, rings, paper crafting, etc... using the Bigz Shot and #2 Circle Die. The PAWS-ibilities are endless.
