Project Tutorial

Step 1. Cut a 30cm length of cord and thread your needle. String on 6 pip beads and take the needle back through the beads to form a loop.

Step 2. Work your thread back around the flower petals, creating knots along the working cord to secure. Do the same thing with your tail thread. Trim away the ends.

Step 3. Cut a new length of thread 30cm long and string on 15 seed beads, leaving a tail of approx. 10cm. Pass your needle through the centre of the flower.

Step 4. String on 1 seed bead and pass the needle back through the hole in the centre of the flower and out to the opposite side.

Step 6. String on 15 more seed beads. At this point, you may wish to check the size and how it fits on your finger. Once you are happy with the size, pass your needle through the precious 15 beads, and back down those you just added to form a loop.

Step 7. Pass the needle through the loop a second time, tie your two ends in a couple of knots and trim away the tail ends.
