Tangled String of Beads 27

I am always amazed at how many designs can be created using just one little applique shape.

I have just remembered that I started playing with little circles some time ago … must find them and have another play.

    I like this design. “String of Beads” is an easy but very effective applique design, and for the not so fond of ‘applique’ like myself, I don’t mind sewing the occasional one. Thanks to you Judy!

    I am with Marie. I like the String of Beads. The circles sound interesting too! Not sure I would like to be stitching down all the circles though. For some reason mine tend to turn into slightly oval shapes LOL. Just have to slow down and take more time I guess and starch better would help as well.


    • Cindy,

      I would gather the edges of the circles, and shape them with a firm piece of cardboard and a fairly warm iron for hand applique, but they can also be fused and either machine (like Marie), or hand stitched (like me, though I have done both).

      I can understand that String of Beads is not a lot more popular if people only use a traditional hand applique method. All those points would drive me insane too!
