{ FREE Tutorial } Beaded Zipper Pull

15 Apr

Collect a few beads or buttons

For the zipper pull on this little pouch I used the old bead buttons from the sweater I  made the pouch out of, I love to upcycle and recycle all I can!

Next get some heavy thread.  I used a waxed thread

Thread the waxed thread through the zipper end and cut a nice size thread to work with

Tie a knot.  Do this twice

using a needle add a bead

tie a knot again

One bead on!

continue to add beads and knot until you are satisfied with how you zipper pull is taking shape.

Once you reach the end secure with two knots and trim the thread

Ta Da!  You’re done . . . It’s that easy

Hmmm . . . Art???

28 Feb

The girls and I were driving in the country the other day when I spotted this interesting junk art sculpture.  I know they were thinking I was crazy “here goes Mom again!”  as I abruptly slammed on the brakes and did a 360.  “Grab the camera”  I commanded with a giggle.

Pretty creative really!  You know me . . . I love to be creative
