Shell Straps

19 Feb

And these are the beautiful crafts that my friends and I made together earlier today. I don’t really remember the name, but let’s go with shell straps for now, eh?

So take a scrap of fabric like the red one above. Get some shells and cut a circle around them, then sew them in the circle and pull it tight, making the fabric shell on the left.

Take leather (or whatever type of heavy string) and bend it in half, knot it, bead it, knot it, bead it, and then knot it. Tie another knot at the bottom, and put the two fabric shells around the knot, and then sew them together.

Awesome key chain, now acquired! (mine’s the blue one by the way).
