Flower Centers with Beads in a Bottle
I decided to practice with Beads in a Bottle to make centers on my rolled fabric flowers. I picked up a package of Beads in a Bottle and found some fabric in my stash that matched the colors, and so I thought I would share it with you.
Once I had my fabric flowers finished I took the color of Beads in a Bottle that I wanted for each flower and just added a few small beads in the center of each flower. I put an odd number of beads in the center of each flower. I used the yellow with the green and white fabric rose, because I thought it would really pop.
I used the crystal for this blue based flower because the dark blue in set was a little too dark.
I forgot to take a finished picture before I gave them away. It really makes it easy to add the look of beads to an item without having to sew them on.
