Beaded Bib – day 241

I always admire when I see a beaded bib worn as a necklace or attached to a neckline of a top.  It is a fun project, the kind that somehow surprises you with what the outcome would be.  I gathered, old trinkets, buttons, mismatch earrings, some beads and paper beads of course and proceeded to put together my own version of the beaded bib.


How to: Cut out a pattern from a felt of any color to fit your neckline.  Gather beads, buttons, ribbons, etc….and lay them out on your pattern.  I used E6000 to glue the big pieces, if you want to put seed beads into the mixture it’s better to sew it onto your piece.  I don’t consider this a quick project because it involved laying out your beads and finding the right placement.  After………it will be all worth it!
