I chose to go with the ATC card size (2.5 x 3.5), which is a nice small size and easy to bead as it is a rectangular shape.
The hardest part for me was the colours to choose. Wow, I am a colour nut. I love colours...ALL of them!
My kids always laugh at me when I can't decide on colours...lol.
So, here is where I started:
|wow, my picture is upside down...lol|
|3 drop peyote background|
|working on the focal|
|putting it all together|
That's right....I should have adhered the background to the embroidery backing BEFORE I sewed the focal on. THEN I wouldn't have had some much darned trouble with the vines and such, and the thread slipping between rows of 3 drop peyote size 8 beads...lol! Oh well, life is a learning curve right? Right!
So, lesson definitely learned!
