Beading

This is March’s small piece with the leaf theme. The leaf is Ultrasuede on Wool and held in place by the beading. The outline is beaded back stitch using size 11 seed beads. The background fabric is a batik; the binding a hand dye.

Ultrasuede is not my favorite fabric to hand stitch. I like the fact that it doesn’t fray, but it is hand to sew through. There are Glover’s needles but they are too big to fit a bead over, so I did use a short beading needle. A long one tends to break with the pressure put on it.
