Have a few fabric scraps lying around? I mean those little scraps that you've been saving for years. Well, you were right. There is a good use for them. Almost any fabric or leather can be knotted, rolled, padded, or wrapped into decorative shapes you can use anywhere that you'd use ordinary beads or buttons. You can string them into necklaces or stitch them, make them hard as rocks or leave them soft, and embellish them all you want with additional stitches, beads, and other surface effects.
