Hey everyone! Today’s post is another reuse/repurpose one! Surprised, aren’t you? Well, it all started with this pair of shoes:
But I got them totally ruined when we went out last:
And since these shoes were totally unfixable (trust me I wanted to save them, they were my favorite pair to wear to work) I decided to take the best from them, aka the beads!
So 3 or so hours later (cutting those babies off was a torture), I ended up with this:
A neat little pile isn’t it?
My next thing to get was – some beading cord. So last Sunday on our way to Lake Calhoun, hubby and I stopped at Bobby Bead on Hennepin. Turns out beading is an expensive hobby here in the US! The stringing cord I was looking for was going to cost me $12.94 plus tax. Which was so not cool. Then I remembered that back when I was into beading in Russia, I used fishing line. And hey, they sell it at Ace Hardware for $3.50 plus tax, and you get 250 yd! How awesome is that? (Here is a tip – if your beads are small, like mine – go for the thinnest line – in my case it was the one that can hold 8lb )
The guy at Ace could totally tell I wasn’t going to fish with my purchase, so I told him it was for a craft project! Now I am sure you are all dying to see it – so here it is:
Almost half way through:
I am so wearing this to work today!
Let me know what you think:)
