This flower needle case beaded box design is available exclusively in my ebook, ‘How to Make Beaded Boxes.’ So, if you want to make this project, please follow this link to purchase a copy of the ebook. It is sold as a download, or on CD-Rom. So, you get video demonstrations of all the techniques. Plus, you can print out pages if you wish.
This project uses the following beads:
- Size 10 delicas
- Your choice of shaped beads for the flower
The ebook includes information about where you can buy supplies.
Then, in addition to the beads, you will need your favourite beading thread. My preferred choice is Fireline, but you don’t have to follow that. Just use something that gives you good tension.
Experience and Techniques
The flower needle case beaded box is made exclusively in Peyote stitch. So, you will be using a combination of variations. But don’t worry – I have demonstrated all of them on videos.
I would suggest this project is suitable for intermediate and beyond. But if you are just starting out and you’re prepared to learn some new things, then give it a go!
About the flower needle case beaded box
When I was planning the designs for this ebook, I wanted to show people how easy it is to scale the basic box shapes. Then, by doing this, you can create very different-looking designs. But you don’t need to learn any new techniques. (So, this needle case is just one of seven different designs included in the book).
Since I wanted a tall, narrow pot, I felt I needed a design to suit it. So, that’s when I came up with the idea of creating a needle case. If you were wondering why this is such a tall and skinny design, that’s the reason why! The lid fits very securely, so this is a fun and safe way to store your beading needles.
You can also have fun experimenting with creating different flowers. You could use beads from your stash. I have included a few different ideas to get you started.
So, I hope that will inspire you to grab a copy of the ebook. But if flower pots aren’t your thing, I have over 50 other beaded box designs you can check out here.
