Fabric bead necklaces.
13 wooden beads (mine were 2 cm)
Light weight fabric
Spacer beads with large holes (If you haven't got these you can put knots between the beads)
Sewing machine/over locker.
Cut a length of fabric 12 cm wide and 120 cm long. It can be shorter than this - 1 metre is good too. For smaller wooden beads 1 cm wide, make the piece narrower, say 8 cm. You're just allowing for the bead to fit easily and a seam.
Fold right sides together and sew along the edge. I use an over locker for this.
Fold your casing out to the right side. This can be a bit fiddly. I used a knitting needle to help.
Cut the ends on a diagonal - this helps if threading spacer beads on.
Slide on your spacer bead 20 cm from the end. Then put the wooden bead inside the casing. Follow this with a sliding a spacer bead on to keep the wooden bead in place. Alternatively, tie a knot.
Repeat until you like the look of it. I used 13 beads on one, 11 on another and 18 on another so , basically, I make it up as I go along. You can trim the ends to make them even.
Fold in the unfinished ends to hem and hand stitch.
