2012 - Fabric/Paper Bead Swap

I'm participating in a swap at Creative Lenna

I started with paper beads but kept layering fabric on top of the paper.   It was interesting how it activated the brain.   I enjoyed the process...

Blue fabric serged edges, brown furry yarn, wired with beads

Gold Potato Bag wrapped with wire

Back has a twist and glued

Tubing, brown/slate fabric, washer ends, wire with twisted ends 

Tubing, red print fabric, wire w/twisted ends
1/8" poly stretched to thread, wound on tubing used for fish tanks

Tubing/brown fuzzy yarn, gold vegetable bag, with matte medium & wire secured w/twisted ends

Red serger thread waste over black poly bag secured with matte medium and wire.

Brown patterned fabric w/matte medium over tubing, wire twisted with bead

Yellow vegetable bag over fabric, matte medium, wire with spaced beads & embellishments

                          Brown patterned fabric, wired, tubing, washer ends


Neon fabric with Ladder Serger stitch, Matte Medium and Snowy Stickles over tubing


Fabric, multi-layers matte medium, walnut stain over tubing, secured with wire, sequin flower edged with terra cotta chalk ink

Fabric bead, layered snowy Stickles

Red & white serger thread waste, bound on tubing, ended with metal filial

Have Fun.....
