Adding beads to flowers is quick and easy when you thread the beads straight onto the yarn used to stitch the centre.
|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.|
|Make the first stitch of your chosen centre and tie the yarn off tightly. The placement of this stitch will depend on what style of centre you are making.|
|Thread on a bead and stitch over the same spot.|
|Make your next stitch without a bead.|
|Thread on a bead and make a stitch in the same place.|
|Continue all the way around your flower.|
|Remove it from the loom, darn the ends in securely and you have a finished flower 🙂|
