I finally finished knitting a pair of thrummed mittens this winter and had bits and pieces of wool roving left over. I had always wanted to make felt beads, so I used a tutorial on Knitty ( http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/FEATfeltedbeads.html ) and got to work. I made several of them in different colors and used them in different mediums. Here are just a few of the things I created. Let me know what you think!
This first one is a headband that I made by sewing together three of the balls and adding a grey freshwater pearl in the middle. I then sewed it to an elastic headband.
I then took these ones and sewed them to bobby pins. I pin my bangs back everyday so these are cute useful and can jazz up my work outfits.
The last things I made were earrings. I added some floral beads to the top and bottom and kept them simple, fresh.
Thanks for looking and I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!
