Circles - Bead Embroidery Japanese-Style Kit

by Margaret Lee

Circles is an elegant project featuring a simple repeating pattern. The design comprises of two different circle motifs in alternate sequence and rows of simple, five-petal flowers.


Circles is a perfect introductory project to Japanese-style bead embroidery as it provides an understanding of and practice for the three foundation principles of stitch length, stitch placement and stitch direction.

The Circles kit includes a 13.5cm (5 1/2") square of cream cotton quilting fabric upon which to complete the design. While the book shows the finished piece mounted into a box top 8.5cm (3 3/8") square (box not included in kit), it can be adapted for numerous other applications.

SPECIAL NOTE | This kit is does NOT include the wooden box or needles.  For a list of recommended needles refer to page 17 in the book.
