I really needed to try another hobby requiring more tools and supplies! I have a friend that is always wearing the cutest beaded bracelets. On our trip to Waco for the Double Toe Jam, she taught me to make one of my favorites, called the "caterpillar".Thank you, Martha!
For me, working with these small beads and thin needles requires magnifying glasses and good lighting. I came across this Ott light at Hobby Lobby on the clearance shelf at 40% off.
This is my completed "caterpillar" bracelet.
I also attended a beading workshop at "Sewing Machines by B & B". This beaded tin was the project.
This was an Altoids mint tin. I will now be collecting empty tins!
The beaded tin was one of many projects in this book.
Now I have a hobby for any mood-beading, sewing, Swedish weaving, crocheting, gardening, etc.
Y'all come back,
