On hind sight, I chose floss that coordinated with my fabric but I see that the fabric does not show very much now that they are all done. Using double sided tape on the inside of the bead made stitching it difficult by gumming up the needle. I may have to stitch the beginning end similarly to how I stitched the finishing end to create a base for the bead and maybe some other kind of glue that would be better for stitching. I will have to experiment.
So in the end, though I love the look of the beads and I am sure they will make a beautiful bracelet the time commitment to making enough beads to make a bracelet for each of my swap partners is more time than I have!! Darn!! So I will be looking for a different project for that swap. In the mean time, I have decided to make a bracelet for my self with my beads!!
