Cross stitch patterns using beads
Way back when bell-bottoms were starting to go out of fashion (the first time), cross stitch patterns using seed beads were easy to find. Not so much today. Does anyone know of a modern pattern company that still makes these or simply have any good books to recommend? My older sis has been looking for patterns for years but they don't seem to be made any more and Google wants to only give us seed bead WEAVING patterns. Not the same thing
The key to doing this is the size of the aida v size of seed bead.I'll go look through my stash/books to see if I can find anything else specific.
This helps to
Anything with the word Ferret in it must be good I know you can basically turn any xstitch pattern into a beaded one, but once upon a time there were patterns specifically for that and I was looking for presents. lol The advantage was that they provided the correct colors that corresponded to the threads used and made sure there weren't a ton of backstitching or halfstitches needed. They were the lazy way out lol
I will forward these sites to her to see if she can find useful stuff on them tho.
