Bead People are Go

Success! But a little bit funny around the neck where their insides are showing (oo-er!) I shall have to make a whole gang anyway no doubt, since at present there is only one each for the bigger kids, and that is not enough to prevent ‘troubles’. So I’ll improve my technique a bit as I go.

The Steiner/Waldorf blocks (also affectionately known as ‘offcuts’ around here, thanks to Dermot being the son of a joiner!) were from Mum for Rohan’s birthday. They came from Winterwood, we visited for the first time last week. For the record – beautiful shop, beautiful, beautiful felt, but I don’t recommend driving from here to there and back again with a passenger prone to carsickness. Sorry Mum! (She couldn’t even drive us, since my car is a manual and I won’t let her drive it!)

  1. They look great Melanie – try doing a running stitch around the neck and tighten. This should get rid of the ‘funniness’ around the neck.

  2. Awww… sweet bead peeps. I hope you can sew some more fast enough to avoid troubles!

  3. They are adorable. Well done.

  4. They are so cute! I marked that tutorial a while ago for my kiddos, because I know they’d love them. Now I just need to actually make them! 🙂

  5. They look great! Hope you have made inroads on sewing a pile of them this weekend to avoid the troubles!!

  6. They need tiny felt collars, glued on around the neckline, or little ribbons.
    We will go to Winterwood in MY car next time. I think It was an ear thing though, after my cold. Took me all week to throw off the migrainy feeling.
