Celebrate this Christmas by making our lovely Poinsettia stocking, the newest addition to our beaded stocking collection.
This stocking features a bunch of red and green poinsettias with festive leaves on a dark blue background. It also has a gold trim and shiny beaded tassels for extra sparkle.
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 36 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 12 delica colours in total for the stocking and the finished beadwork is approximately 7.75cm (w) x 9.25cm (h) (not including loop).
35 x 3mm and 1 x 4mm Fire Polished Round 24kt Gold beads are also required along with a small amount of wadding.
The bead pattern supplied is 32 pages and includes 36 step by step photographic instructions. A colour word chart is provided where required.
