Lesson #9

Materials needed:

1 Big Eye Beading Needle…This is a long skinny needle with a broad opening in the middle that opens for easy threading.

1 roll of FireLine fishing line, comes in black or clear…Wal-Mart

1 pack 6/0 Seed Beads
1 pack 12/0 Seed Beads
Hot glue gun
Your project

In lesson #7, I showed you how to do an Algerian Plaited Stitch. This is a continuation of that piece. Adding Elegance with the use of seed beads.

I’m adding the beads to the same piece used in lesson #7.

Here’s a short video demonstrating how to do it.
