Well, another month has passed, so time to take a look at my new beading pattern for August 2019.
In my last blog, I introduced a work in progress and debated whether or not to write up the pattern. Well, I have taken the plunge and produced a pattern for you… And not just a pattern, but also 3 online courses with video demonstrations to teach the basic techniques I used in the project.
So, let’s explain that…
A new beading pattern for August 2019
For those of you who didn’t see the last blog post. My new beading pattern is ‘Katie’s Kube’. I don’t think I need to explain the inspiration behind this design. But I will emphasise that this is NOT a Rubik’s cube!
With my beading pattern, you get instructions for making a frame that consists of 26 empty compartments. Into these, you can place 26 little beaded boxes. So, you can arrange them any way you like.
The little boxes are big enough to hold a small treat…I added some jelly beans when I was photographing my version. But I’m sure you will come up with more ideas.
I also have this pattern on sale in my Etsy store. So, if you prefer to shop on Etsy, use this link to get your copy of the PDF tutorial.
3 new beading courses
Now, when it came to writing up this new beading pattern, I assumed anyone using it would already be expert in the CRAW technique. But it occurred to me that there may be people out there who want to develop their CRAW skills.
So, I also put together three more online courses, focusing on building CRAW. Between them, these three courses will take you from beginner to advanced level, in easy steps.
Why three courses and not just one? Well, it gives you options.
You might simply want to learn how to build rows and walls so you can create a box using CRAW.
Or, you might already know how to do that, but not know how to build roofs and windows to create more complex structures. So, I used a simple beaded bead project to teach those skills.
If you already know all that stuff, do you know how to add complex colour patterns to CRAW? Do you need some help in dealing with the tight spots as you bead? This is all explained in the Advanced CRAW course.
And yes, for those of you who want to try all three, you can buy them as a bundle to save a bit of money. So, here is the link to investigate further.
