After seeing the photo of my fabric necklace
some of my friends asked me to show them how I make these fabric beads. So, here we go! 🙂
First you’ll need some cotton wool, rolled into a small ball.
Then take a stripe of fabric, about one inch wide (maybe a bit less) and 5-6 inches long. Wrap it around the ball in different directions, and secure with stitches.
As you can see, I like the “not neat” look. 🙂
After adding a stitch here and a stitch there, it will look like this:
Then wrap it a few times with the thread that’s already on your needle, and secure it with a little knot:
Then add more thread in different colors, just for fun. 🙂
All this bead needs now are beads!
And a friend! 🙂
And that’s how I make them. I hope this tutorial was helpful. Have a great time making beads, and remember, once you start, it’s hard to stop! 🙂
