Pattern Description:

Learn the art of bead embroidery! Bead embroidery is the art of stitching glass beads to felt using needle & thread. Learn basic bead embroidery in this step-by-step master class. This is not a kit, nor is it a bead-by-bead pattern, but the file does include a sketch of the above cat which you may use to practice beading. This tutorial will teach you the beaded backstitch technique, as well as layered beaded fringe. (This tutorial does not get into felt layering.) This tutorial will encourage you to try creating your own bead-embroidered jewelry & art, as well as give you an insight into a few of my techniques. I hope this tutorial inspires you to try bead embroidery!

List of beading supplies needed.
Sketch which you can print out and use as a template.
18 color photos & step-by-step instructions.
