Its surprising its taken me so many years of beading until I decided to make a little Welsh Lady!
Whilst I am not Welsh myself, I lived in mid-Wales for almost 5 years during my university degrees, and even now most months I will hop across the border to North Wales and enjoy walking in the countryside and taking in the views of the stunning Welsh coastline, there is really no place like it.
Last year after I did a Leprechaun for St Patricks Day, I promised my Welsh ladies that I would create something especially for them and this is what I had in mind! Now we can all celebrate St David’s day with a cute little Welsh lady to keep us company.
Our little Welsh lady has a black hat with lace bonnet underneath. She is wearing a white blouse and black skit with a checked apron, all constructed using Round Peyote. Finishing off her look is a Netted shawl and cheerful yellow daffodil, of course.
This bead pattern is made using Japanese Miyuki size 11 Delica. 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 11 delica colours and the beadwork is approximately 5.5cm (h) x 3.5 cm(w) x 3.5 cm (d). Polyester wadding is also required.
The bead pattern supplied is 33 pages and includes 74 step by step photo and graphic instructions. A word chart is also included.
