More how to make a Heart with Beads

A blog reader sent me this heart pattern - thanks! This pattern is a good example of using the "cross stitch" method (I'm not sure how other people call it but I usually refer it as cross stitch 'cos it looks like a cross). The "cross stitch" method is a basic pattern which you will see throughout this site. For example, the cross, the beaded bead and the two-tone ring . . . are all based on this basic beading technique.

How to Make a Puffy Heart with Beads

I finally got a chance to try making the Puffy Heart. I only have access to a diagram pattern that is written in a language that I can't read so it took me a few tries to get it right. It takes a lot of effort and patience to do but the result is rewarding. I would say this is an advanced project. But it's not that hard if you concentrate on what you're doing and understand the concept behind it. You can attach the finished heart to a key chain, a necklace, bracelet etc. I haven't decided on what to do with the ones I made yet. Will share the finished products with you later...

Please check out these videos if you have trouble following the instruction on this page.
