Strips of linen - folded from both sides to the middle
and rolled up firmly -
a commercial braid - square beads,
a collection of small beads and seed beads.
a pin to keep it rollled up
I used the beads of an old necklace which I didn't like anymore.
Suddenly I had a nice boxful of beads and a good choice.
I tried everything - undid - joined again
used my square beads
and made a necklace.
I had the fun of stitching the toggles.
