This morning, I finished up the last beaded tire on the little red car I’m working on. Basically, I just beaded over & around 4 rubber grommets that I had stitched onto felt. Now, I think its safe to say that it no longer looks like a VW Beetle, although it did start out as a drawing of one. Interesting how a bit of felt, a few yards of thread, and a handful of seed beads can sort of take their own shape!
Regardless, I think it looks kinda cool for my first 3D beaded car. To me it definitely looks like some sort of European car. What kind of car would you call it? I don’t think it’s quite finished yet, but when it is, I think I’ll list it on ebay as a charity auction to help the people of Haiti. At least that is my plan! 😀

Also, just a bit of other news. I am in the process of moving The Lone Beader’s Boutique from CafePress to Zazzle. I created a shop & added a few items there last night. I will be adding more items in the next few weeks, and eventually I will be closing down my Cafepress shop. I think Zazzle will be more fun because customers can customize many of the items. If you’re on Zazzle, please join my fan club! That’s all for now. Back to beading! 🙂
