If you have scrap fabric you are not really sure what to do with, or you want to make something to match that out fit you just made. This is really fun.

The finished items seen here can be found at my Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/CairParavelCreations?ref=seller_info

Step 1: What you need

Picture of What you need
You will need;

A small scrap of fabric. (about 1" by 3" to 4")
Glue stick ( it is actually very important it be a glue stick and not some other kind of glue)
Scissors
Wooden bead (they come in large bags with many sizes for about $3.00)
Knitting needle, stick, pencil or something else that will fit in the end of the bead

Great tutorial, thank you very much!
I wonder if it would work with plastic beads? I have some ugly plastic balls I bought by mistake... I wonder if I could cover them with fabric to make them usable =)

As long as the beads are smooth I don't see why it wouldn't work. Good luck!
