Your Aladdin’s Cave of beading patterns!
With over 500 beading tutorials, plus beading books, kits and online classes, there is a lot of choice here on the Bead Flowers website. If you’ve got time to browse it all, that’s great. But I’m guessing you probably want a way to get straight to your perfect project.
If you have an idea of what you’re looking for, then use the search bar at the top right of the page. If you need a little more guidance, then I’ve got the perfect solution. Just use my Q&A,(below) to guide you quickly to your perfect beading project…
How do you enjoy learning?
If you are used to working from PDF patterns, then use this link to begin browsing.
Or maybe you like to learn from books? Well, I have both traditional print books, and ebooks available on here. The ebooks come with the added advantage of giving you video tutorials in addition to the written instructions. So, you can browse all the books here.
Now, if you prefer to learn with the help of video demonstrations, then I can offer you a selection of online beading classes. These allow you to interact with other students and ask me for help. You still get a PDF download, but I also demonstrate the project on video. So, if that sounds good, click here to find your ideal beading class now.
How much time do you have for beading?
“I really struggle to find time to bead. So, I’d love a project that I can make in just a couple of hours. Then, I’ll feel like I’ve achieved something.”
“I love getting lost in a really long project. It helps me relax.”
Well, I have something to suit both of you. I’ve organised all the beading patterns according to how long they will take to complete. So, you can immediately see which are quick makes, which are long projects, and which fall somewhere in between.
How experienced are you?
“I’m really new to beading. So, I want something that I can follow easily.”
“I don’t really know. I’ve been beading for a long time. But I still don’t feel that confident yet.”
“I’ve learned a lot of techniques. So, I’m looking for something that is really going to challenge me. I get bored and lose interest if the project is too easy to complete.”
It doesn’t matter how experienced you are, you can find what you need quickly and easily. I’ve also segmented all the patterns according to how difficult they are. So, you can find what is right for you. Just search for patterns according to your level.
What techniques do you enjoy?
“Peyote stitch is my favourite technique. So, I’m always looking for new projects using that.”
“I want to try something new. I saw some French beaded flowers online the other day, and I thought they looked great. So, do you have any French beading patterns?”
“I love bead embroidery, but I really struggle to find new projects.”
“I’m trying to learn brick stitch. So, I’d love a project that will help me.”
“I just want to make some simple jewellery, but I don’t know where to start. Can you help?”
The Bead Flowers website offers patterns across a wide range of beading techniques. So, if you’re looking for something specific, I can probably help you. You can browse the beading patterns according the techniques that they use. That way, you’ll find whatever you’re looking for.
Do you know what kind of thing you want to make today?
“I’m getting really fed up of making jewelry. So, I want to try something different.”
“My daughter is getting married next year. I’d love to do something special for her. So, I wanted to make her wedding bouquet from beaded flowers.”
“I’m going to a party and I want some new jewellery to match my outfit.”
“I’ve seen a lot of beaded boxes on Pinterest and Facebook. Do you have any patterns that I can try as a beginner?”
“I love making beaded pens to give to my friends. So, I’m looking for some new pen designs.”
Sometimes we need a project for a specific purpose. So, if that’s you, then I’ve made it really easy to search the beading patterns according to the type of thing they are going to make. If you want to try your first beaded box, you can. Or maybe you need some new Christmas decorations? Well, you can find those easily too…
Do you need to use particular beads?
“I’m really sick of all the new shaped beads. I just love my ordinary seed beads. So, do you have any projects that don’t need any fancy beads?”
“I don’t want to buy any more beads at the moment. So, I’m looking for something that just uses beads I have in my stash.”
“I went a bit crazy in my LBS last week. And now I’ve got a ton of shaped beads and I don’t know how to use them. Help!”
If you have beads you need to use up, for whatever reason, then you want a pattern to help you. So, I’ve also organised the patterns according to the types of bead they use. If you’re someone who just wants to work with basic seed beads, then find a ‘seed beads only’ pattern. If you love a bit of sparkle, try searching the crystal patterns. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, try something using shaped seed beads. It’s really easy to find what you need…
“Wow! All this choice has just blown my mind! I wasn’t planning on buying any beading patterns today, but now I’m really tempted…What do I do?!”
