Simplified Weaving.

I am making these bracelets when I am not  making Little Quilt squares or working on hop pieces.  Stitching these is a real pleasure ~ easy and stitches I enjoy.  I like the simplicity of the lines and colors.
Ladder stitch down the base, brick stitch lining the base, a whip stitch lining the brick.



Size 11 seeds in cream and light green, size 8 forest green beads, two buttons













Size 11 seed beads in black and white, size 8 steel color seeds, button


















Size 11 beads in an olive iridescent and pink, size 8 in dark bronze, lobster clasp









Thanks for stopping in :-D

These are really cool! They look really easy to wear too. Sometimes it's nice to have something simple that doesn't take forever to make!

I'm so horrible at being simple and yet I admire it so much. These are wonderful, Christine. Brings out the beauty of the seed beads.

I can see how these would be very fun to stitch up. Really like the first one, dressed up with that stacked-button closure!

Very nice! The two buttons is a sweet touch. I think those would be fabulous to wear, I bet they feel great.

Hi Christine,
I love these they are so pretty and I bet feel good when worn. My favorite is the pink one. I like the idea of stacking two buttons together for a clasp.

Isn't it fun to find a wonderful pattern that both gives you lots of versatility and works up quickly? These are adorable!

Christine, have you ever tried weaving on a loom? I think you would really enjoy it, from the look of these gorgeous bracelets!
