Fabric bead necklaces
The Pandoras and a few friends had great fun this morning making these funky bead necklaces. Lushorn organized this project. We took 20mm wooden beads, wrapped them in fabric (smeared with a glue stick on one side) and stuffed the excess into the holes using knitting needles. Then we strung them on ribbon and added toggle clasps. Cute, no?
What a great way to use up some of your little fabric scraps! (Each bead uses a 1-1/2" x 3" strip.)
Here's Rhondi, wearing her first necklace and starting on a second:
And Liz (concentrating VERY hard):
I didn't get a photo of Michele or her beads because she had to skip out early.
