French Beaded Blue Flax – PDF Pattern


French Beaded Blue Flax pattern by Lauren Harpster

Difficulty Level: Beginner +

This pattern is designed in beginner-level techniques, but to make the flowers more delicate, I used 15/0 seed beads, which may be a little harder to work with.

You will need to be familiar with these French Beading techniques:
Continuous Loops
Continuous Crossover Loops
Continuous Wraparound Loops
Twisted Fringes

All of these techniques are taught for free in the Learn section of my website.
