Recipe for Sparkle

Take one spool of #4 Kreinik braid (any color) and add size 11 clear beads. This is what you get!

By the way, it's hard to tell from the video but the beads are attached using Don Lynch's basketweave beading technique.  The beads alternate direction so they look woven.

  1. Saw some finishing I thought you might want to feature. It's a belt canvas made into a pillow! It's at the ChapelHillNeedlepoint blog from June 26. I love your blog, gives me great ideas. Thanks.

    1. Dee, I might have mentioned this pillow. I am not sure if the article has published yet, however. I write Blog articles about three weeks ahead, so it might have published or might not have. Anyway, here is the link. It's a very clever way to use a belt canvas!

      Thanks for the reminder.
