Welcome to the new Beadlady website! This revamp has been in the works for a long time! I completely DIY-ed the custom theme – I’m sorry if it doesn’t look as polished as a professionally-made website. I don’t have the funds to hire a designer! To celebrate the big move from the old blog to this new one, I am posting a DIY. I hope this is the first of many this year!

Let’s make a super easy DIY wall art out of fabric and embroidery hoops! Are you excited yet? Steps after the jump!

You will need:

  • Pretty fabric
  • Embroidery hoop
  • Ribbon or yarn
  • Scissors

      Inge, thanks for the kind words!

      The blog redesign took a lot of trial and error, and a lot of sleepless nights! Being broke really squeezes the creative juice out of you! haha!

      Thanks for dropping by my blog!
