My friends and I used to do this when I was a kid. We made all kinds of stuff with them. We would buy plain old marbles and cook them up. I like the clear/colored ones best. I love the idea of making a necklace with one. Thank you for the idea!!
You did an awesome job making that colorful skirt! I admire you for taking the time and the patience it took to put that together. I can't sew- well, let's say, I have taken the time to learn to sew, so my hat's off to all of the craftsters here that can make beautiful fashions to wear! I want to be able to do the same thing one day soon!
Keep up the awesome work! Craft on Baby, Craft on.
What type of socks are you using? I haven't found any that don't start fraying after a few washings ( yes, I am lazy and don't feel like tacking the cut edges down... or even knitting a pair...) I like that black pair you are wearing!
So easy and quick - perfect for surfing and sewing - I have several pairs, long and short, and just throw them in the wash - they don't unravel or anything - no sewing needed, and a great way to reuse poor old, worn out socks!
