Beading Basics: The Cross Knot

Viviana Soler

I ripped my pants the other day....

It wasn't a classic rip.  I didn't bend over and suddenly hear a loud ripping sound.  Actually, I hadn't even noticed that the pants had ripped in the first place! 

It wasn't until I got home and took my pants off that I realized I had been walking around with a gaping hole in my pants. 

Yes.  That happened :-/

I wasn't sure if the location of the hole had exposed me or not... so what did I do?

I put the pants back on to find out!! hahaha

I wanted, I NEEDED to know if I should be mortified or relieved. 

Result?  I'm about 80% sure nobody saw anything... Phewh! I'll take it!

Maybe if I knew how to make a Cross Knot, I could have fixed my pants.  

Wait, no.

This isn't a sewing cross knot, this cross knot is for jewelry making!

On that note: It's Tuesday!  Which can only mean one thing:
