Do you love fabric and beads? Do you have scraps of beautiful fabric that you can't bear to throw away? Then this giveaway is for you! In Fabulous Fabric Beads: Create Custom Beads and Art Jewelry by Kristal Wick, you can learn to make beautiful beads from fabric.
This book is chock-full of information and inspiration. The first section covers the basic materials that can be used to make fabric beads. The second section explores a number of surface design techniques, including the use of paint, dye, bleach, paintstiks, gesso, foil, stamping, and more. Then Kristal Wick explains how to make a variety of fabric beads, including basic rolled beads and more elaborate variations, such as adding rhinestones or wrapping with wire and seed beads. There are also a number of jewelry projects included to feature your newly-created fabric beads and a gallery section for even more ideas for how to use fabric beads. The instructions are clear and the book is full of photos that illustrate the instructions, step by step -- not to mention all the photos of beautiful beads and finished projects. You can see some of the pages from the book at Interweave -- just click on the "Preview" tab.
Here you can see Kristal Wick demonstrate fabric bead-making:
