How many times have you been upset when you little plastic stitch markers break? I have gone back and can’t find the stitch markers. I know sometimes we need a lot of markers but others times you may only need 1 or 2… well, whether you need 1 or 10 I came up with something much prettier and easy to make.
When I was at StitchesWest 2015 I saw so many vendors that were selling different types of stitch markers. I thought what a great idea. I thought maybe I was the only one making my own beaded stitch markers, lol. Anyway I decided to make a quick video showing you how I do it. To be quite honest it’s so easy to do that I hesitated uploading the video. I like to make my own beaded jewelry such as necklaces, bracelets etc. This is very similar to that. You will need some simple jewerly/beading supplies which can all be purchased at your local craft stores such as Michaels, Joann’s, Hobby Lobby, etc. The great thing about these stitch markers is that they will be made to your own preferences. You choose your own beads, colors, etc. The only thing I will caution you is to be careful not to make them too heavy as they may stretch out your work. They can be made for knitting or crochet. The knit stitch markers I made will fit up to a 10.5 size needle since I rarely make anything that requires a bigger needle. I do have a stitch markers with a larger ring. I explain how to do it in the video. I hope you will enjoy it!
Did I forget to mention these make great gifts and are big sellers at craft fairs?
