Review: Fabulous Fabric Beads

Fabulous Fabric Beads by Kristal Wick is one of those high-value craft books that teaches you lots of different craft techniques within a simple project framework. The first section of the book is about making designs on a fabric surface. Each technique has clear step-by-step photos, and whether you make the beads or not, these techniques have application to all kinds of crafts. The book covers everything from sponging to salting to bleaching to stamping, foiling, stenciling, splattering, and more. Lots of ways to alter fabrics! From there, the book offers a whole slew of ways to make beads from these altered fabrics. . . . And I think these quilted beads are very, very cool. There are also some pretty non-tube beads here. . . .

I'm excited to play around with all these ideas! ABC: Embroidery Fonts Embroidery Alphabets, VictorianWhitework. Jacobean Embroidery. Quilting Arts Challenges - Quilting Arts.
