Wow. What a great instruction booklet. Very clear and great ideas. And I was so delighted with the full color photos, so detailed and great close-up versions. Thanks so very much. I look forward to working on these this winter. I highly recommend this seller.

This pattern was easy to read and understand and was well done. The beads that can be created would be delightful embellishments to any crafting or sewing project. I am glad I added this new skill of fabric bead making to my repertoire.

The instructions are both clear and supportive (such as offering options and encouraging experimentation). The shop owner is also awesome! Here is a photo of the first beads I made from the instructions.
