Be the boogie-woogie bugle babe with all the new beads! New this week - two sizes of Japanese bugles - We have Honorable #1 and #2 bugles. #2 are 6 mm long, and #1 are fun-sized at only 3 mm long!

tb11h221 Japanese Seedbeads - 11/0 Toho Hexagon - Metallic Bronze

Bewitching beads that will put a spell on you! Hex beads! These are 11/0 hexagonal beads - short, six-sided beads. The flat sides reflect light with more dazzle, like facets - making these blingy little seedbeads.

Fixin' to Hot Fix? Planning to bling up something for the hot summer evenings? Check this out - this is Crystal Applique Fabric. A little goes a long way - Use an exacto knife to cut out a design, or punch out designs with a paper punch (check out your local stamping supply store - even Walmart has them!) - lots of great punches are available! Leafs, flowers, animals, abstract designs. Then just iron on! You can sparkle like a vampire in sunlight! (Where I come from - vampires burn in sunlight and I like it that way, thenkyouveddymuch. So there.)
