Beaded tapestry crochet

6 posts in this topic

There is so much one can do with this technique....This is a large tote I made a long time ago, with beaded butterflies. Tapestry crochet is also stronger than most since the sc is done over another strand (to facilitate color changes). If you can sc, you can do this...

It turned out beautiful. I made a tapestry crocheted skull bag and filled in the eyes and nose socket with beads. My bag was felted after being crocheted.

 

I like the look of your beadwork more than the one I felted. Yours seems so much more clean and precise to me :D

Thank you, but the other bags I have seen of yours have more detailed features all around the bags, and are truly beautiful. Although I was doubled stranded throughout, I only beaded the butterflies. And it took me a long time to get them right with the beads strung on, :lol. It was the first project I did after the class I took with Carol Ventura.
