Craft Spotlight: Fabric Mosaics

2014-06-30-FeatureImageR15651 Fabric Mosaics are great for tactile activities such as beading and stringing! Who knew! At our art camp, we tried out a technique where we interwove Brilliant Beads with Fabric Mosaics on string to make colorful and unique jewelry!_DSC0303First, we started out by folding the Fabric Mosaics in half and cutting out the center. This made a hole that we could use to string the yarn through. IMG_00000576We made sure the kids cut out the centers very carefully. IMG_00000580Once all the mosaics were cut, we tied a knot at the end of each length of yarn. IMG_00000587We first strung large Brilliant Beads up against the knots. This made sure that none of the Fabric Mosaics could slip out. IMG_00000588 Then we started layering our bead arrangements! IMG_00000596The bright colors in the Fabric Mosaic pack worked so well with our Brilliant Beads! IMG_00000606The combination was simple: alternate a Fabric Mosaic with a Brilliant Bead and back again. Keep going until the whole string is decorated or filled up! IMG_00000610Getting ready to finish up! Now we can loop the beaded string into a bracelet… IMG_00000620…like this one! IMG_00000624Or a necklace! Simple and easy, yet great fun to make!
