Fabric Bead Charms

Fabric Bead Charms

Last week I made my first fabric beads.  You can see those in the previous blog post.  Of course I had to use them in some projects. I made some charms and a key chain.  I just love them.  They can hang anywhere. I plan to hang one on my purse.  I also used one of my beads on a long hat pin.  I forgot to take a photo of it but you can see it in the video and the link for the video is below.  I really enjoyed making these and I just love the way the beads I made and the other beads I used look together. I especially love the fibers on the beads I made.  I have a few other projects I am working on where I used my beads and at some point I will show them in a video and/or on my blog post. Until next time have fun creating!

Making Fabric Beads

Fabric Beads

A month or two ago a YouTube subscriber asked me if I had a video on making fabric beads.  I did not have a video about it because I had never made any paper or fabric beads before.  She asked if I would mind showing my take on making fabric beads and I said I would. When I had some time, I sat down and started making some fabric beads using scraps from my scrap bin. I found it relaxing and fun to do. Once I had a few beads made I then made some charms with them.  They are so cute.  So, there is now a video on how I make my fabric beads and next week I will share how I made my charms.  A link to the beads video is below.  Use up some of your scraps and make some pretty beads. It’s fun. 🙂

Fun Fabric Strip Flowers

Fun Fabric Strip Flowers

I have a couple of drawers full of flowers I use in my creations.  I have gone through those drawers and using up the flowers pretty fast. I am close to being able to move all the flowers into one draw.  I have learned over the years what I do and don’t like so in the future I will be more selective when I buy flowers.  Then, you have to account for taste changes.  What I once liked could be something I don’t like after having it in a drawer for 20 years. No more of that.  That stuff has to go.  So, I took some odd flowers I had and added my strips of fabric to them to make them flowers I like and will use.  There is a video on you YouTube channel if you would like to see the process of how I made them.  It was fun to use up old stuff and create something ‘new’ that won’t go to waste. 🙂
