Here is a picture of little fabric things I love to make.
I call them Odd Ball Charms or Beads. To make into a charm simply add a little beaded loop....to use as a bead, simply string on through the fabric.

I will post a tutorial for these on my blog soon. They are super easy and a ton of fun to make.

Cute! I really like the bright colors you used. Did you hand-stitch all of that?

How fab is that?  What do you use to stuff them? I really like the colours that you have used.

Why doesn't evolution work with embroidery kits?

I'd hang that from my rearview!  So cute!  I could imagine stitching a dream or wish with each bead, very neat!

Hello,

Oh, I hope I am doing this right...is this the way I reply....
anyway, yes, I hand stitched all the beaded and random embroidery on it.
I find that is the best part of this project. Very meditative.
Thank you so much.

Thanks so much,
I use regular poly fil or fiberfil. This is a great project to make out of your scrap fabrics.

Yes, when I started...I put a small piece of paper with a wish/hope in it....something like 'serenity', or 'love'.
But, I have now made so many of them that I just make them to adorn my art quilts or fabric picture frames. I have a few posted on my web site at:
