March 18th, 2012 | guest post: fabric beads diy

Hi, Katie here! You can find more about me by visiting my blog, Punk Projects, where I post craft tutorials, photography, inspiration, etc! I’d love to have you guys stop by!

For today’s post, I thought I would share a tutorial for these fun fabric beads I have been making. They are perfect for those tiny fabric scraps that you have but don’t want to throw away

Supplies: Fabric Scraps, Mod Podge, Paint Brush, Toothpick or Small crochet hook.

1. Cut your fabric strap into a 1″x3″ strips and place face down onto your work space. Take your toothpick (or I used a crochet hook. You just need something long and thin.) and place at the edge of your fabric

2. Start rolling your fabric on your toothpick/hook.

3. Keep rolling it until you get to the end, now you should add a little bit of mod podge to the end of your fabric strip, and then finish rolling it up

4. Apply mod podge around the rest of the fabric bead, but be careful not to fill in the holes. Let the mod podge dry, and voila! Now just make a whole bunch more. :). These are a great use for your fabric scraps. I used them to create a couple of long summer-y necklaces, but feel free to use them on whatever you want

Hello friends of Kait! My name is Lisa from lala fauxbois and I’m so excited to be guest posting here today! I met Kait through the super fun Twitter Tea Party she hosted last month, and I’m so happy to have found her lovely blog! Today I’m showing you a couple of fall outfits incorporating one of my favorite trends from last summer… rompers!

I bought a few throughout the summer and instead of packing them away for fall and winter, thought they would be great for layering in cooler months.
