And today we have a more complex lesson, we will learn to weave a beautiful box of glass beads. Such a lesson is requested by many of our readers, so happy to meet your wishes. As the gaps in the weave are filled with beads, the finished product gives the impression of a holistic, not woven of the individual elements. A good option if you want to effectively give a small gift.
Here you will take about 104 glass beads, whose diameter should be 8 mm. in Addition, you will need beads 11 and 5. Better to help us pick up tweezers, because in some places during the lacing of the box, hold the needle through the beads will be very problematic.
So, the basis of our caskets is woven with a cross of beads. After the Foundation is ready, start to stitch the rows of beads large size – 5. Focus on the diagram.
Now take a small bead, and begin again to cover our basis. For each step, you will need 5 beads that are attached to the large beads of the previous row. The movement of the weaving starts from the right side and move to the left, then, on the contrary, after we come to the end of the row.
Now we turn our bottom on the other side and drag another 4 large beads as shown in the diagram.
But there will be more complicated as we begin to weave the side of the box. To do this, drag another row of beads as shown in the diagram. Also formed and a number 2, remember that weaving is a cross. And do not forget to sew the beads between the large beads.
Continue to work, guided by the description in the article, which you will find by clicking on the link, and the outline that you see just above.
And so we weave our legs products. More detail the whole process you will find the link located at the end of the article.
Once the legs are ready, you can do the lid of our box. This weave is exactly the same square as for the base, as it is sheathed. Now that the cover is not slid from his seat, it is necessary to sew exactly the same legs as the base, however, their locations will be slightly different. In the diagram, the point of attachment is selected, it is hard not to notice.
If you have a lot of patience and willingness to work, you can make the box more volume, increasing the number of beads in the base and adjusting the height of the product. The location and number of the beads will remain the same.
