Learn Beaded Fringe - Demo with Large Beads
Use your "pyramid" from my Learn Brickstitch video, thread your needle with the working end of your thread.
1
Make sure to keep track of your thread ends.
String the number of beads needed for the length of your fringe. In this case, I am adding 7.
2
Separate the last bead and run your needle back up through the remaining beads, including the set in the base row of your pyramid.
3
The bead you separate and skip acts as an anchor for the bottom of the fringe.
Run your needle back down through the neighboring set of beads in the pyramid.
4
Now you are ready to add your next fringe.
Repeat by stringing the required number of beads.
5
Again, separate the bottom bead and run the needle back up through the remaining beads.
6
Run the needle back down through the neighboring set and finish adding your required fringe.
7
...adding the final fringe...
8
Work the end of your threads into your piece, going back through the top loop to strength it.
9
Cut the ends as close to the bead as possible and they will disappear into the work.

Now follow along using seed beads and see what you can make!
