Like to Bead?

For those who love beading I've posted a link to the Silver Needle's site so you can see the Reflets de Soie of France beaded scissor cases kits.  You'll get the chart and the beads in the kit but will have to purchase the 35 count linen and threads to attach the beads in a half cross stitch (i.e., a tent stitch over two threads).  It looks like the scissors cases are meant to be finished with a zipper down one long side but it is hard to tell for certain.  These are very pretty but the beads are Japanese seed beads so they are probably small and the finished pouch will be fairly heavy.  I'd suggest you not use floss to add the beads if you plan to carry this instead of framing it, but substitute beading thread instead.

At any rate, this is a slightly different project from a French designer that the dedicated header might like to try.
