Ok, I'm crossing my fingers and hoping my pictures work!
Craftster has been inspiring me for YEARS now...but I'm just getting access to digital pictures (I hear they are the 'next big thing'!) so I'm going to try and post some of my projects in the next couple days...
This is a guitar strap I made for my b/f's birthday. Using the 'lazy stitch' I sewed seed beads to canvas (its hard to see the individual beads in the pictures). Then when the beading was done (two weeks after his birthday! Whoops!). I (painstakingly) sewed the canvas to some buckskin that I had lying around. I then made ends that would attach to his guitar using black canvas and braided buckskin (to tie around the 'neck').
I didn't have much beading experience...but I think all the hours I put into it were worth it. He really liked it.
Close Up...a little blury. Each 'square' of one colour is really three rows of five or six beads. Also in this picture it looks like the leather isn't even on both sides of the beading, but it is...just a funny shot.
Let me know what you think!
