Hi all! More Valentine ideas. I have a simple bead cross stitch project that you can make in a couple of evenings. I used 14 count aida cloth and 11 aught seed beads, but you can adjust them to a larger size if you prefer.
You’ll also need embroidery floss that matches the color of your beads. Use only 1 strand of the floss on a beading needle. Pull the needle to the center and knot your 2 matching ends. Now you have 2 strands to go through each bead.
Here’s the design I made up.
Bring your needle up from the bottom left hole of your square. Pass your needle through 1 bead. Bring it down through the top right hole of your square. You can leave it at this point if you want your beads at an angle. I prefer mine to be straight up and down.
Bring your needle back up through the bottom right hole.
Pass your needle up through the bead.
Now pass your needle down through the top left hole.
That’s all there is to it.
Easy and colorful!
