There’s an upcoming class on making scrappy fabric beads, I hope you’ll join in! All proceeds go to covering the costs of keeping Lettuce Craft in the green, so to speak .
When I was figuring out the best way to make them I ended up with piles and, since it was impossible to choose favourites, I used a few to make a book with piano hinge spine.
Attaching the covers and pages took some finagling and a lot of hand sewing. These photos aren’t great but I hope you can the details anyhow.
Ribbon was folded over signature spines & machine zigzag stitched, then the ribbon got hand stitched to every other bead.
I had a lot of beads to choose from, this is not even half, lol.
The colours, patterns and texture make me so happy, I love how it turned out.
How delightful! What a fun creation!
This is an ingenious way to use them. It looks fab
Ooo, I was just thinking about how making them a little bigger around than expected would allow them to be attached to a book as a pen-holder - This takes it a step further and I love it!
What a clever way to use them in your crafting. I love how colorful and unique each bead is.
Nifty use of those nifty beads! I love that you’re showing so many ways to use these as the class approaches!
Thank you everybody! Book making is one of my favourite crafts to make, sewing is another. So of course I found a way to use as much fabric as possible for this journal, lol.
Today is the last day to sign up for the scrappy fabric bead class that’s happening this Saturday!
