dread sleeves are super fun to make. Though tedious they are really beautiful!

Yeah I prefer to work with natural materials. I used to work with sculpey a lot, but I just prefer natural materials now. Unfortunately I still have a LOT of sculpey left

my brother has a bamboo door curtains and one day i was walking out of his room and ripped one row off (this was a couple years ago). i hid the row from him in my drawer so he wouldnt get mad (he found out haha). But a couple weeks ago i noticed that these would make perfect beads and it works a lot. There are a lot of beads and with different sizes.

I made a turquoise seed beed sleeve and it was sooo pretty! I used thin beadalon elastic, got a custom fit. Unfortunately, my little dog decided it's taste really good, lol, and now it's gone. Need to make another. Thanks MiaEliz for this page with patterns']

That's a cool idea! A good chance to reuse some materials :) and bamboo is such a nice bead material too

Ugh, animals! I know if I made one I would need to watch out for my cat. She will bite and chew almost anything that is left within her reach (she has a soft spot for bracelets and beads too :/ )

Maybe you could take it to a vet hosp/home for them to use in crafts?

I make polymer clay beads. I use sculpey clay. I'd say just have fun with it. Let your creativity explode!

Here's some examples of the beads I make.
