I am having so much fun creating new fabric from scraps. I am also finding interesting items to make from these fabrics.





I had an idea to make a quick machine stitched fabric bead. so I cut strips from the fabric and then cut them into rectangles of approximately 8 x 5 cm

Folded up so that the decorated side is facing out.

Machine stitched as close to the edge as possible on the open side

And made a row of beads.

The fabric is thick so the beads curl slightly and have lots of texture. The structure is slightly rounded on the bottom edge.

I made one large central bead from a rectangle of 16 x 8 cm

Threaded them onto a leather shoelace.
