“[A] sumptuous book of canvas beadwork... Challenging projects for pillows, purses, and wall hangings are real standouts.”—Bead & Button

The technique of stitching beads onto canvas, so popular during the Victorian era, is undergoing a revival today, and these 25 projects have a wonderfully rich and lustrous look. With the same familiar sewing methods and fabric backing used in regular needlepoint, embroiderers can create a new world of bright colors and shimmering textures. Simple needleworking charts get you started on any of the original and versatile designs: there’s the coolly glowing Blue Moon Mirror, a bright springlike Bird with Berries Ornament, a patriotic Flag Heart Pin, an opalescent Pearl Plant Picture, an exotic Persian Rug Purse, and 20 others.

Baker & Taylor
Introducing the technique of stitching beads onto canvas, this instructional handbook combines design charts and detailed guidelines on stitches as it presents twenty-five ingenious projects, including step-by-step instructions for colorful pictures, ornaments, jewelry, purses, and small accessories.

Orgasmic experience will be had by all when looking through this book! I couldn''t believe the plethora of projects small to large that screamed out to be done as I flipped through it. Imagine a small beaded ornament or necklace so stunning that you just wanted to do it right away and had to rush out to buy beads! And then there are the patterns of pink cottage and blue willow plates, the brooches, the purses, the mirror backs, all so stunning and wonderful you could faint from sheer joy. I know I did!
