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

    I’m definitely trying this as well. I’ve always loved fabric beads & paper beads made like this.. but it never actually occurred to me that I could be making them myself all this time!
