Fiber Bead Dolls

Lately, I've taken a break from traditional & art quilts to make fabric bead dolls. The beads are made by wrapping drinking straws with fabric strips and gluing them into place. The fabric beads are then joined by threading them onto buttons/beads to create the doll body. The fun part begins when it's time to dress them and give them a personality. Here are several examples.

  1. Hi Jane,
    I wanted to tell you how much I am enjoying looking at your fiber bead dolls. I have been making and selling fiber beads for a few years now. I've ventured out and made a doll, intending to sell her but I can't bring myself to do it. She's about six inches high and is an ice skater!
    I just wanted you to know that your blog is wonderful.
