This beautiful piece of beadwork is a follow up to our very popular beaded stockings “Santa’s Visit”, “Santa’s Night”, “Santa’s Village” and “Santa’s Tree”
On this stocking Santa is travelling by hot air balloon
This stocking is made using Round Peyote and uses only delica beads. The shaping of the stocking is done as you go so there is no sewing two pieces of beadwork together and no awkward shaped edges to sew.
It’s big enough to hold a small present or two, so, what will you fit in your stocking?
As usual with ThreadABead featured patterns we give full detailed instructions and in this pattern, there are 29 detailed steps, making this pattern even suitable for beginners to beading.
This bead pattern is made using Japanese Miyuki size 11 Delica. A form of Round Peyote stitch is used but full detailed instructions are given, and no previous knowledge of the stitch is required. Please note the pattern may not work with any other size and type of beads.
There are 23 delica colours in total for the stocking and the finished beadwork is approximately 7.75cm (w) x 9.25cm (h) (not including loop).
18 x 3mm and 3 x 4mm Fire Polished Round Crystal AB beads are also required along with a small amount of wadding.
The bead pattern supplied is 31 pages and includes 29 step by step photographic instructions. A colour word chart is provided where required.
