Small Beads

 small beads - luibeads

These small beads have been quite popular in my little bead shop . They are nice little glass beads which are approximately 4mm, and they come in a lovely mix of colours in both opaque and translucent glass. If you use beads with large holes these 4mm beads can make a perfect end stop for your big bead.

I took a break from beads and enjoyed sewing, which I usually like to do in the evening.  I find the whole process quite relaxing from cutting the pattern to pressing seams and finally sewing at the machine.  These booties will fit 6-9 month bubs they are listed in my lovelui Etsy shop.
