Neccessity is the mother of invention so they say.
That was certainly how my String Bling came about.
I was going out to a function and I knew that some of the ladies are serious wearers of
the Real Deal Bling.
I'm a crafter - a new paintbrush excites me.
But I wanted to jazz up what I planned to wear.
I took a bunch of fibres ( not too hot, it's a LONG summer here)
Then I mindlessly (this is a late night project)
Spoke nicely to my sewing machine and stitched some strings.
I dragged out beads ( they breed in the cupboard I'm sure)
and I grabbed a little contemplation time here and there
A tip - only stitch short sections of beads.
That way if you snag your wearable it won't fly to pieces.
Stitching is a contemplative thing for me.
It was surprising how quickly it came together.
There was even a little bit left over to make a twisty bracelet.
I enjoyed the play so much I have made a couple more in different styles and colours.
Anything But a Card Challenge! Challenge 11 asks you to incorporate things that can be tied: twine, ribbon, thread, wire, rope, cording, trim, chain, seam binding, etc! You don't have to really tie it, but you get the idea!
I Love seeing what you make so don't forget to join in this knotty challenge.
PS I broke out in a new stamp to celebrate :)
