While we were at the beach, tropical storm Baryl came through town. It was pretty short-lived, but it washed up a bunch of interesting shells onto shore.
We took a long walk as a family (my parents, siblings and wee ones) picking up cool shells and poking at all of the jellyfish. I didn’t take too many home with me, except for a few that I wanted to use for supplies for projects. I thought it would be fun to make my own memento of our family vacation to the beach.
I thought dipping shells would be the perfect way to include sea shells into my wardrobe and personality. It’s also a great way to use some funky-shaped shells. Read more for the tutorial (it also includes helpful tips on working with corded leather!).
