Flower Looms: Beaded Stitching

Loomed flowers with beaded centers

Adding beads to flowers is quick and easy when you thread the beads straight onto the yarn used to stitch the centre.

I've stitched an open centre on my flowers, but there's no reason you can't add beads to the other styles of stitching.

Making a beaded flower on a flower loom Start by winding the yarn on your loom. I've used a large knit wit circular loom but you can use this technique with any loom. You can also add beads to flowers with multiple layers.
