I heard a joke once about a craft supply hoarder.  Heck, it may have even been a true story.  It went something like this:  “She had a box marked ‘pieces of string too small to save’…  and it was full.”  It’s a sentiment that I can relate to all too well.  What do you do with all of those bits and ends?  Rachel at Lines Across came up with this scrap-friendly idea, using bit of material that might otherwise have been destined for the trash to create beautiful beads!  I love the subtle texture they have, and how incredibly economical this bead-making method is!  [how to make embroidery floss beads]
