This is the first one I beaded. After a dreadful rash in the FL humidity.
It was my practice, the next one looked much nicer.
The back. I sew on the medals and then fabric glue them down.
We were beading the string on this one to see what we thought.
Not finished yet.
I am planning on going to Lorretto, PA where I was told there is a book store across from the Carmelite Convent that sells a larger brown scapular than I have seen before. Like 3" square or so... I have been wanting a bigger one, so now I suppose is a good time. I like having mine beaded because it makes it heavier and I can always feel it. I like the continual reminder that I am wearing the scapular. I have always told my children that it reminds me who I belong to and how I am supposed to live every moment. I probably need to wear something the weight and size of a hubcap that bangs into my knees when I walk, but this will have to suffice :0) A hubcap wouldn't fit under my clothes anyway.
I will post another picture when I get it, and when I finish beading it.
