Hooray for wool beads!

Recently there's been an influx of gifts needing to go to people, so wool beads came to the rescue! This first one was just wool beads all the way around with some embroidery on each one. The camera phone that had to step into the normal camera wasn't up to the task of getting pics of the embroidery.

All right then I thought, what about using beads of all forms, like wool, wood, plastic, glass...etc...

So this is the result! It ended up being about 24 inches long. The color of the beads  is really ruined by the lighting and the yellow chair cushion behind it, by they were purple, lime green, blue and brown.

Thanks for looking! All comments are welcome!
There's a party in my yarn stash and everyone's invited.

I learned to make the wool beads by just googling wool beads I found a variety of videos and websites. You can also look up wet felting. Of course right now I can't find any of the links I initially used. But here's a link I just found on craftster!


Good luck!

When she was good, she was very very good - but when she was bad she was fabulous.
