Bead & Tapestry Cuffs »
InstructionsThe peyote tube was giving me fits as I have MS and the coordination required was a challenge. So I just gave up and tied the tails in a knot. Not as pretty, but done. :)
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Funky, Whimsical, Casual
Crochet thread for warp. Embroidery thread for weft. Seed beads.
What was your inspiration?
My granddaughter's new favorite color is purple... so mine is, too! I'm inspired by this great course and how easy Claudia makes it seem. Using her methods, many things ARE a lot easier than what I probably would have tried on my own.
What are you most proud of?
I was able to make a home made loom with a picture frame and nails and end up actually completing the bracelet in just a couple hours. Except for that peyote tube... I'll conquer that next.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Have patience, have fun, be creative and if you are just starting out and not sure you want to invest in a loom, make one with a picture frame and nails. I spent less than $10 for my setup and it worked satisfactorily.
