Fabric Beads, Oddities and Thingamajigs - Alma Stoller's Online Class

Aren't these big fabric beads fantastic?

I am taking an amazing online class with Alma Stoller. I have her blog linked because I love to see what she's working on. In the class this week we learned how to make our own piece of fabric.

Which we are turning into beads she calls: Fabric Beads, Oddities and Thingamajigs. These two are 1 1/2 inches tall.

These are one inch tall. Tonight with a little TV I will start the next set so I'll be ready to join her second week on time and prepared!

Having shown you my new fabric beads, I am happy to also link to my beading group! Jewelry Making
