Here's the beaded hedebo from last week; I like this one and need to give it a try on a larger scale.
"Slide the needle under the first stitch passing it from right to left.
Keep the working thread under the needle"
Once I realized that, the stitch became easy!
However. . . here's what I've really been working on the last couple of weeks!
The pattern is sized for adult women, so I had to alter it down to fit a (very slender) ten-year-old. The overdress bodice is interfaced, lined, and boned--that should give my little princess a taste of what life was like in former times! This has been a fun project!
