Pattern Description:

Everything you wanted to know about flat brick stitch,

But were afraid to ask!

Introductory Price $5!!!!

This document is especially for those who are having trouble grasping Brick Stitch.

Brick Stitch was the first beading stitch I learned. My goal was the triangle and diamond brick stitch earrings. Once I learned the basics, I stretched out to more complicated patterns and shaped brick stitch.

This 35 page document builds your first bugle bead foundation triangle top earring and then shows you some simple patterns you can make with that knowledge, including a santa and a christmas tree earring. It discusses the different shapes of brick stitch charts and which way each should be started. Teaches you the ladder and the zig zag start. On to some fringe choices. For the extreme brick challenged, I have a detailed tutorial for an earring. It's a small pattern, using only 3 colors. You can use delicas or size 11 seed beads. This tutorial will take you step by step per bead for your starter and first brick beaded rows. Then it numbers each bead for the rows after that. This is a very detailed brick earring tutorial - note that it's 9 pages alone. Once you learn this you will be ready to make any of the earrings in my 4 collections of smaller earrings. I give you my earring collections with 30 easy beginner charts to play with your new found knowledge.

This is for FLAT brick stitch and will not cover tubular or flat round brick stitch.

Save paper and ink - Read your pattern on your favorite tablet or e-reader. I keep all my tutorials on my iPad so I can have them with me all the time. I often beaded from my laptop on the table next to where I bead before I had the iPad.

All my tutorials and patterns are designed for you to use to create beadwork. I give my permission for you to make and sell things made from my patterns and tutorials. I will never charge more for a tutorial giving permission to sell things made from my stuff. I think it's such a rip off to do that. If you wish to teach my patterns or projects, please contact me and we will work out something.

This is a pattern for electronic delivery only. This is for your personal use. You may make items and sell them but please do not share or sell my tutorial.
