Will do, Am a little disappointed in the fact the colors are not showing as well as i had hoped, perhaps when it is complete they will.  Or it might be the background color I picked.

It's all about learning

Greetings,

I have the bag beaded, now will begin working on the trim.

I used Beadtool4 to make the graph and word chart.

Was my first time working from a word chart, it was a little easier then going simply by a graph.

Its about 4 inches long to the tip and 3.5 wide.
I did tubular stitch till I got the part where it starts to decrease. Then had to front and back apart.  Joining with a running stitch after it was complete.
This image from about halfway completed




This one is just 20rows shy of being done



And finally with the actual bag bead and joined t the bottom


If anyone would like the graph let me know and I shall post it.

My BFF makes beaded trinket bags, and I know the INTENSE work that goes into designing them with images. This is just spectacular! I would wear this for sure!
