April Bead Demo: Koi Charms

Sunday, April 16, 2017 will be the next beading demonstration at The Bead Gallery, Honolulu. Stop in after your Easter egg hunt. It will be from 3 - 4:30 PM.


Here is the information:

Get ready to celebrate Childrens' Day with beaded koi charms. Traditionally called "Boys' Day", May 5th, is the day many local families fly koi streamers outside of their homes for the boys in their family. The koi represents success and strength.

On April 16, I'm going to demonstrate the basic stitches you need to know to make your own koi charms at home. Make one for each boy (and girl!) in your family. There will be patterns for a large koi and a smaller koi. I will be working on the larger koi but both patterns will be distributed for free!

If you have attended a previous demo, and are familiar with basic bead weaving stitches, you can still join us! Pick up your free patterns and get started on your project.

The koi can be made in any color you want! Delica beads and beading supplies are available for purchase at The Bead Gallery.

Event Type: Demonstration
Project: Seed Bead Koi, Brick Stitch
Cost: Free! 
Experience: None

**RSVP not required but if you are attending, let me know and I will reserve the patterns for you! Email: BeadCrumbsHawaii@gmail.com **

Free Bead Pattern: Hawaiian Cat (Popoki) with Lei

Enjoy this free bead pattern of Popoki, the Hawaiian Cat, wearing a pretty orange flower lei. It's the perfect pattern for the upcoming May Day celebration on May 1st. It is also great for the kitty lover, any time of the year!

Bead Pattern by Bead Crumbs

I stitched my cat in the brick stitch beading method using 6 lb Fireline and Delica 11/0 bead colors. I have set aside a few bead sets that include all the bead colors you will need for this project. The beads are packaged and labeled in 1 gram bags. You could probably make 3 cats with the bead set. Bead packets may be purchased here > Bead Crumbs, Etsy.

Enjoy!
