Fabric Beads






Have you ever picked up a book and bought it because it had something in it you wanted to try?  I did that a couple of years ago with the book, Fabulous Fabric Beads by Kristal Wick, and I finally got around to pulling the book out and giving fabric beads a try.  I had some silk fabric pieces left from a sample book that were too small to use for much of anything else, so I thought they would be perfect to use for making fabric beads. I added a charm, some beads and strung them on fibers.  If you are interested in getting the book, I have included the link to Amazon where it can be purchased.  So go ahead and give them a try!  Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by my nest.

Take Care - Robin

Hi Robin, I don't know how I missed your latest post , too busy on Facebook maybe?
I love what you created , it's fun to use up little bits of fabric isn't it? I like the gold or metallic you used on the beads. Looks like a great book .
