Tiny Flapper Bags.

One year my mom and my cousin Amy got together and made everyone these small bags for Christmas gifts. Everyone had different colors. This one is mine...

...and this one is my mom's. I don't use bugle beads very often. I like how they were used in these pieces. They took a class, but I don't know who the original designer is. They look like miniature versions of bags flappers would have carried.

Hopefully this weekend I will be going to visit my newest nephew, who was born early and is in the NICU. The night he was born was a harrowing experience, but thankfully both mom and baby are doing well.

We're also thinking about going to see G-Force. N. has been looking forward to seeing it. Before we know it, it will be Monday again.

Beautiful little bags! I like using bugle beads - less beads to string ... LOL

I'm glad Mom and Baby are doing well.

I stumbled upon your blog and was charmed by these beaded bags. My mother makes beaded bags too - she sews them on aida cloth.

These little bags are fab! I like bugle beads, but since most of the beads I have are with sharp edges I don't use them in bead weaving. I fear they'll cut the thread.
