The art of French Couture Hand Bead Embroidery is stunning and is for everyone. 

This project combines shadow quilting and 3 dimensional hand beading together creating a flower with 3 dimensional petals that glitter beautifully. Your finished piece is a graceful light and dark pink water Lilly. If you can sew on a button you can sew on a bead!

Some of the techniques covered in this class will be: 

Day 1: Wed 9 Jan 2019: Learn the technique of shadow quilting to make the base of the flower. Create leaves using bugle beads, sequins using whip stitching and back stitching.

Day 2: Wed 16 Jan 2019: finish each petal individually. Create a bud for the centre of the flower. Attach all the petals to the flower in a 3-dimensional way.

This project can be framed or appliqued to an accessory.
