Fabric Covered Bead Necklace


Whilst my neighbor Jami and I were on The Smelly Barn Adventure™, we met a cute lady who was wearing a darling necklace.  As we walked off, Jami said “We’re totally making those.”

She texted me when I was out of town to tell me she’d found a tutorial and was making them.


The tutorial is here at  Froo*Gal.

Helpful tips:

The beads at Hobby Lobby have narrow holes.  They  make it difficult to shove all the fabric in.  The ones from Robert’s (a local craft store) were WAY better.

Make sure you use a good glue stick.  The 10 for $3 ones dried too fast.

Use a needle with a blunt tip, not the super sharp ones.

Make a few extras and keep them in your purse, because people are going to stop you and ask you where you got your necklace.  At least that’s what I hear.  ;)

  8. Thanks for the link to my blog froo*gal and my tutorial for the Liberty of London Bead Necklace! I have also put together a kit that is for sale in my etsy shop, Whimrose.

    You have made some very good suggestions. Since writing the tutorial I have found a good source for beads with larger holes at http://www.craftparts.com.

  1. [...] beaded necklaces.  Apparently, it’s a knock off of Louis Vuitton.  I got the idea from here.  Laura picked the bright orange fabric and I went for the more mature looking brown and yellow [...]
