If you tried out the My Beading Heart Tutorial and got hooked on the art of embellishment, here’s a great next project to get some practice in. I beaded mine on my well-loved Joe Fresh denim shirt (I loooove Joe Fresh), but like the heart tutorial sample, it would also be great on a jacket, a shirt pocket, jeans, a bag or tote or use in home decor. You’ll notice I added some lines of sparkly bugle beads for added effect.
Download the PDF and print it out.
