And That Led to This

After making a few of the rings in my last post, I played around a little bit with right angle weave (RAW) and made this cute little box. I love little beaded boxes and bowls and baskets and...I could go on and on. I hadn't done a lot of RAW before this, so it was fun to play around and see how it works. When you ask people, it seems to be one of those stitches they either love or hate; no middle ground. I haven't done much with that stitch since this, so I don't know where that puts me. I didn't hate it, but I guess I didn't love it enough to go crazy making everything I could with RAW. It's a good stitch to know. You should give it a whirl and decide which camp you're in: love it or hate it.

Oh that is so sweet!
I didn't even know that there's a technique for making boxes like that. How big is the one that you made?

Thanks. :) It's small, about 1-1/2" square. Posting about it made me realize I haven't seen it since we moved. I'm starting to wonder if I have a box of bead stuff in the basement that hasn't been unpacked!

Oh, I love finding supplies I've forgotten about! It's like getting a present or something!

Happy Friday, Christina!
