For weaving beads, instructions are first given for constructing a good, basic loom from a few simple objects, and then directions are detailed for eighteen different chains, various patterned fobs, three belts, and an interesting card case. A slightly more complicated process of weaving follows, diagonal weaving without a loom, and many items to be made in this way (including a particularly beautiful purse with butterfly design) are fully described and illustrated step by step.
There are also projects for those familiar with needlepoint or other canvas work, like handsome bags with fringe, and if you knit or crochet there are half a dozen evening bags and purses you can bead. Also included are directions for making lampshades, including an interesting pattern derived from a Sudanese costume; hangings; and decorating burlap curtains. And there is a special chapter devoted to projects for children: an easy-to-make loom for weaving belts, chains, etc., and simple and well-illustrated Read More chevron_right
