Make your own beautiful beaded flower brooch and enjoy learning how to Brick Stitch!
Brick stitch is a fun and unique way of stitching beads together that makes for a very flexible way to create a variety of shapes. Once you get used to how brick-stitch works, it is easy to scale down to smaller beads for even more fine detailing and shaping options.
Instructions are written with the beginning beader in mind and include the THREE different sizes shown in the photo. Whether you purchase a complete kit or just the pattern, you can customize your flower to look like a Plumeria (light coral), Pansy (white) or the Poppy (red).
