Here is the second bracelet that I made today!
I can't put up a picture of the first because my daughter is sound asleep wearing it, but I will try to get a picture of that one tomorrow!
It was fun making this one, too. Tomorrow, I will be giving it away to one of our favorite teachers. She taught both Pumpkin and Fuzzy in 2nd grade, and she has become a wonderful friend.
Red and white are the school colors that they wear a couple of times a month on scheduled days. Now, she can accessorize and think of two students who adored her!
As far as the beading being hard on my hands, I have not found it to be hard yet. I am taking my time, and letting the tools do the work when I crimp a bead, not me. I lay everything out and work very slow, resting in between. Sewing got too hard for me because of pushing the needle up through fabric, but so far...so good with the beads! Of course, this is very basic stuff.
I will put in a plug for the AC Moore store. They have a lot of great how to booklets for getting started, and I just picked one that was easy to read and had lots of pictures!
I will put up more pics as my projects progress, I have to get what I gave my mom, back just to do a quick picture! lol
