Beads Etc.

I went to Michael's yesterday to get some little really round beads for my billiard balls. Here is what I bought.  I just can't go into that place and only buy one thing!  If you poke the photo you can see all of my goodies better. 

I had a coupon plus some things were on sale. Love the textured felt. It will make a great rug.

I did get my little beads. They are the perfect size for billiard balls.  :D

I had to cut my triangle down to fit the smaller beads. Now it is very close to 1:12 scale (below). I needed two brown and two orange beads, plus one black 8 ball.  I painted those. 

Then I realized that the ends of my sewing pins (the six at the front) are almost the same size as the beads I bought! I could have saved myself a lot of trouble if I had noticed that first!  LOL

I'm not sure I will take the time to add the stripes and numbers? Maybe the 8 ball will get one? Writing numbers on 1/8" circles may cause blindness.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

I did stripes on the balls for the first pool table I made. They aren't too difficult but I didn't even attempt numbers!
