Ruined Recycled Bead Ring

fabric and bead rings Collage

These are just a few of the many, many DIY beaded fabric rings you can find on Pinterest – clockwise from the top are flower rings from Giver’s Log, quilted fabric rings from robayre on Etsy, hippie rings from Cut Out & Keep, a flower ring from FabricTwist on Etsy, a funky fabric beaded ring by Kim Taitano on Etsy, and a¬†springy ring from Mrs. Priss.


Well, CraftFail reader Amanda Formaro is super crafty herself (seriously, she’s pro-level) and had just finished a project involving Mod Podged fabric strips when she decided to use the leftovers on a jewelry project.

So I sewed on some seed beads, trimmed it, then glued it together and put it on. I actually thought it was kind of fun. My 18-yo daughter didn’t want to hurt my feelings, so she said “it’s cute”. But there’s “it’s cute” and then there’s “Oh that’s cute!!” So I knew she was just trying to be nice. When I showed my husband he asked why I was wearing band-aid.
