Product description

Now you can combine your love of handstitching and beautiful beads to make delightfully original trims and embellishments. Bead Embroidery Stitch Samples will show you how to add beads to all your favorite embroidery stitches, creating delicate details that are perfect for gifts or personal treasures. Inside, you'll find dozens of stitch patterns that incorporate beads, ranging from elegantly simple single motifs to complex all-over patterns to three-dimensional designs. Along with step-by-step instructions, you'll see numerous examples of how the authors have added these beaded motifs to hems, pockets, cuffs, collars, and handbags, or used them as home decor trim on pillows, curtains, and lampshades. The patterns inside emphasize beaded edgings and trims, as opposed to heavy, solid beaded fabric motifs found in other beaded embroidery books. You'll be inspired and charmed as you discover endless ways to make lovely patterns with beads and stitchery. With just embroidery threads and simple beads, you will set your work apart with dazzling details and exquisite beauty.
