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:

I didn't get a photo of Michele or her beads because she had to skip out early.


  1. All that fun and not a calorie in sight ...?!?!?! It is good to see these faces -- some, who shall remain nameless here, were lovely company at the Barnful of Quilts. Thanks guys!

    By the way, here is where I have "hidden" the hand-dyed fabric. Scroll down a bit and click to enlarge:

  2. Looks like you had great fun and great results! Terrific looking beads!
