I couldn't use my craft room today as DH was painting the walls...turquoise! (Well it is my room so I can have what I like.) The only thing I could take easily into the conservatory was my collage /sewing box, so I decided to make a bracelet.
I used felt balls (about the size of a large pea) and stitched beads and sequins on to them.
Finally I threaded the balls onto elastic.
I used all my favourite colours.....shame its not for me!

Love the colours, it's gorgeous! Must have been a blue weekend as Phil decorated our bedroom in those colours. Left me lots of time to craft while the baby was asleep!
Love Sharon

Linda, Is there anything that you can't do? I love this bracelet. It's so pretty! I was surprised to realize that it's felt. It is just too cute.
Hugs to you my dear friend,

Beautiful, Linda! Where'd you get the felt balls, or did you make your own? How's your thumb doing?

Linda said...

Thanks for all the lovely comments - I'll put a link for the felt balls on my blog.
