A rather quick post this week, with something equally speedy to make as the main subject……..
I decided to have a go at finding something on the random tutorial generator to inspire me after drawing a blank with much of the Pinterest feed I’ve seen over the last few days – There’s an awful lot of glitter inspired pinspiration around at the moment……. the bullies of the bus would have a field day; I don’t fancy chasing round the house wiping up sparkling pawmarks from every surface possible and the thought of what might happen with a careless swish of their ever wagging tails fills me with dread. They love ‘helping’ just a little too much!
So I hit the button here…….. and then I hit it again a few more times until something caught my eye 😉
My eyes finally came to rest here: http://www.kimmelkids.com/diy-master-category/d-i-y/macrame-key-fobs/
Perfect! I have plenty of beads and waxed cotton cord stashed away – As I’ve kept on with occasional bracelet production since that first tentative dip into making macrame jewellery many moons ago……
And I needed a new keyring for the million and one padlocks currently keeping assorted gardening tools safe inside the allotment shed…….
So, a quick dip in the bead box turned up the perfect handful of subtly glowing ‘miracle’ beads – Seven in total, just right to make a little rainbow to carry around in my pocket 😉
No glitter was harmed during this week’s make – Good Result! And as well as it being a great little crafting activity to do with kids I am happy to report it can be carried out equally well in the company of slightly crazy English Bull Terriers. Happy Days!
