  • This week I made a beaded button

    And here it is!

    I'm in the process of making a second one. I'm saving them for a project we might be doing in a few weeks time on my course. I think they will add a bit of interest!

    Next week we are doing beadwork. I just need to find some fun beads first! We are meant to use something a bit bigger than seed beads (to save on time) but I might just use whatever it is I have knocking around (which for me is small stuff).

    Very pretty Indri. Can't wait to see a picture of the two together, and you've got me intrigued about the project you're saving them for!

        I think your button is so pretty and so perfect. Was it difficult to stick on all those tiny beads? I'm sure if it was me they'd all be muddled up!

          I threaded a load of beads onto the cotton and then just wrapped the beads around the central bead and then came back up through the fabric and did little stiches between each bead. It wasn't particularly difficult.

              Thats very pretty Indri. What are they attached to, i.e. what is the backing.

                It's a plastic button blank that was used.

                  Thats interesting. Makes you wonder what else you could do with the blank. Mmm. I have loads of seed beads and don't know what to do with them.
                  Unless you could use some????

                    I need some beads that are bigger than seed beads really. I currently don't have a use for seed beads

                      OK. Just that I can't ever see me using them, my sight not good enough to find the holes. lol.
