ORIGINAL COMPLETE BEADING KITS

The kits featured here are all original designs by Beatrice Childress of Laughingbird Beads.

The  Original GYPSY Bag aka Goddess Bag Kits   My friend Sunny Dunn and I began to make what we call "Gypsy Flower Bags" sometime in 1996 as a result of a pattern we found in one of Peggy Sue Henry's "Beads to Buckskins" books.  WE cut down a much larger pattern that dated from the early 1800's.  We made our first bags out of glove leather.  Why glove leather you might ask? A close friend of mine had found a glove salesman's old sample case with all sorts of ladies' gloves inside. The problem was, they were ALL left-handed.  So that was the first source of leather for our bags. I love it when I can use up every bit of something though, and as a consequence, I kept a big ol' plastic bag full of leather glove fingers for years. I never did get to use them up. They were kinda creepy.
 
All kits are complete including 2 beading needles and a spool of Nymo Thread.
