DIY: Wearable words

DIY: Wearable words
When I was looking around for tutorials on making paper beads, I found some really striking "book beads" and accessories, now collected in this post. I understand (after all the browsing) that you can make really durable "beads" easily ... very little time, skill or money required. Woohoo! Who doesn't need more jewelery? (UPDATE 6/12: See the follow up post for more wordy accessories) First, this wonderful necklace. Inexpensive, easy scrap-paper earrings? Need a little more inspiration?

Dog-Daisy Chains: Cutting Remarks When you are an embroiderer you need a good selection of scissors.Some are for display only. They wouldn't cut melted butter, but they are very pretty. But when you need to do some heavy duty cutting you need the serious stuff. You just can't have too many pairs. There was talk in my family of the legendary Heavy Shears that almost cut the cloth by themselves.
