Did you know?

Did you know that Right Angle Weave actually has a "nap"? I was almost finished with my RAW business card case, when I realized that the way that the beads were laying in my piece were not correct. I had completed a couple of rows in sections, instead of going all the way across the row, and they really stood out - in a bad way.

So, I am on row 30 of my case. Again. But doing it in rows, it's laying correctly.

Lesson learned: RAW has a nap, just like corduroy.

p.s. If you find the case pictured above - it's mine, I lost it.

Had no clue. It's a good thing to know as I do a fair bit of RAW. Hope you find your case.

Well, I never even thought about it, but man doesn't that make sense!? I haven't seen the case, but I like it.

Hi there, signed up to post, so now I guess I can....

so sorry you lost your first case, but glad you saw fit to do it again. Every bead artist should have a beaded business card case.

Will be in touch soon, enjoy your holidays!

Thanks all - I finished the base and added some bling up the sides of the case. My new colour choice is better than the case that I lost.

Marcia - after the first one, I had to do it's a stunning pattern.
