Free Bead Embroidery Tutorials (4/9/2014)

2014 April 9

Bead embroidery can be a little intimidating, but it’s not as hard as it looks. Don’t be afraid to try it, and make sure you take a class with a good instructor. Two national teachers I’ve taken great classes with are Sherry Serafini and Hannah Rosner. They both gave me the fundamentals, along with a lot of creative ideas. Every teacher you take will always give you some tips and techniques that you won’t get from another teacher, so it’s always helpful to take different teachers for the same technique.

Secure the bottle cap cabochon to the fabric with E6000. When it has dried, begin to stitch around it.

Quite simply, the beading foundation (backing)is what you actually embroider your beads upon.  You sew upon it, stitching the beads in place.  That’s all it really is, but what do you use?

For this cuff, I made a polymer clay cabochon by myself. I was really enjoying and I love it. It reminds me on silky waves.

I have made another of the lovely pincushions. I extremely like making them. I don’t know if it will suit because it is not jewellery. The colours are blue, gold, green and purple. I have used 12 kinds of seed beads, some sequins and some glass beads.
