The beaded buttonhole stitch is quite simple and deserves more exploration. I am quite comfortable with the buttonhole stitch so I dove right in and applied the beaded version to a seam on my crazy quilt, top photo. I also wanted to try something slightly different so I tried the wheel buttonhole stitch with beads. It will take some practice to get that one to be an even circle. I will definitely be doing some more exploring with this stitch.
Thanks to Sharon B at http://pintangle.com/ for the instructions.
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
