This little ruffled beauty is so small, I decided to make two. I found the pattern for these in the Barbara L. Grainger booklet, Dimensional Flowers, Leaves & Vines. Each is about one inch in diameter and made of delica beads. (I’ve left the threads on the back so that I will be able to attach them to the beaded vessel sometime in the future.)
This is my fourth year with the bead journal project. My plan is to make a flower each month which will be mounted at the end of the year onto a beaded vessel. I will gradually bead the vessel throughout the year.
This flower, from the Beaded Garden by Diane Fitzgerald, is a brick stitched 5-petal flower following the directions for a pansy. I’ve used delicas for the petals. The flower measures almost two inches in diameter.
