New 2022 edition–completely revised with larger charts, more illustrations and closeup color photos of stitches and details. 27 page softcover booklet.
Twirling Ornaments are sparkling, heavily beaded three-dimensional ornaments are worked in Beaded Tent (Half Cross) and Backstitches on 14-count cream perforated paper. These are easy projects for anyone familiar with working a pattern from a chart and basic needlepoint or counted cross stitch techniques. Complete directions include color charts, stitch diagrams and closeup photos of details, plus instructions to take you step-by-step through the finishing– for that, all you’ll need are scissors and glue. Ornaments average about 3-1/2″ high when completed, not including the bow.
Materials needed are 14 count cream perforated paper, size 11/0 glass seed beads, DMC or Kreinik metallic thread, floss or clear beading thread and tapestry needles. 3/8″ wide wired metallic ribbon and clear-drying white glue are used to complete the ornaments. IMPORTANT NOTE: Perforated paper is necessary to create the dimensional effect, evenweave fabric or canvas will not work the same way.
