"And the Bead Goes On..." May's daily fabric beads

Here are a few extra fabric beads for May.

You might remember I said I was doing sets of 5 with the colours ranging from yellow through orange. I wanted to use 'salad coloured' beads. Greens - lettuce, cukes, celery, green pepper or whatever. Orange - carrots and orange peppers. Yellow - yellow peppers and possibly sweet corn. and red beads - salad colours need to have a bit of tomato or radish! (not that I use all of these things in salad!)

I had sort of wanted the fabric base range to run to red. So, day 31 has been made with red fabric base - you will see it on Sunday with the rest of this week's beads. But these are so fun to make, I decided to do a few more in red and then all of May's fabric beads will cover that range.

So here are the extras.




And here are all the May beads together.

Not so particularly 'salad' but that was the inspiration for the beads onto the warm colours yellow-red.

And the new idea for beads for June will be revealed on Sunday with the rest of this week's individual beads.

Thanks Sharon,
They do look very creaturish! They were meant to be a creativity prompt, but it is hard to stop once you get started!
