    Love this idea and technique. Can these beads get wet and will they maintain their shape afterwards?

    Would love to learn to make these beads!

  3. Jo

    Love, love, love this. However, I would love to see how it used on a quilt. Also, what is that white roll you used to place the fabrics on?
