Third One's the Charm

blue green and clear glass boat floats
I started yesterday, it was all trial and error! Today I  finished the
3rd one and even though you might not be able to tell the difference, I sure can. I was quicker and the knots are more evenly spaced. Between the 1st and the 3rd I also figured a easier way to hold the thread while I make the knots. And  the loop at the top is better too. This is what I love about crafting things like this, no one piece will be the same and with every piece you gain experience. It's a win win!
(See yesterday's post with more pictures here)

I made these for myself and they will be displayed in a miniature scene. I am however, planning on a 4th which will go to my brother who is a fisherman! He has over the years found the real deal floating around Alaska. I think a miniature one will make him smile, maybe he'll use it as a key chain.

The glass balls I am using are about the size of a large marble. I found them in a knick knack and they are full of those air bubbles which add to the charm I think..

As promised I will have a tutorial on how to make these too so check back soon!
