More and more sewists and quilters are adding embroidered details to their work. While there are a bevy of stitch dictionaries currently available, this book goes beyond basic and traditional embroidery stitches to incorporate beads, allowing readers to create delicate and striking trims and embellishments. Stitch patterns range from elegantly simple single motifs, to complex all-over patterns, to 3 dimensional designs. Along with step-by-step instructions are numerous examples of how to use and place the motifs on hems, pockets, cuffs, collars and handbags; or as home decor trim on pillows, curtains or lampshades. Patterns emphasize beaded edgings and trims, as opposed to heavy, solid beaded fabric motifs found in other beaded embroidery books Using nothing more than embroidery threads and simple beads, Bead Embroidery Stitch Samplers offers beginner and advanced embroidery enthusiasts alike new ways to set their work more
