Now that the holidays are over and it's January...time to bring out those kits and UFO's (those unfinished objects) that are hanging around. I uncovered this lovely kit, a beaded scissor fob from Fern Ridge Collections that I'd purchased at the EGA's National Seminar 2018 in Louisville. I chose, from their many kits, the Sewing Society Fob. Everything came in the kit including two needles and Nymo thread. It's adorable and subtly colored. Love the spool design!
Using a small pincushion for the 'unused' needle was the easiest way to keep me, and the beading, straight. Especially when working with tiny Delicas!
After finishing the peyote body I added the top with the lobster claw. Easy!
It's all fun (once you get the hang of the two needle peyote) but the really fun part was adding all the do-dads for the fringe: different size pearls and bicone crystal beads in a range of colors! And a cute spool charm. Here's the first dangle of fringe....7 more to go.
It's good to learn something new, get a kit out of the UFO box, all at the same time!
What UFO's are you working on this January??
