One of the most stunning types of beadwork is the patterned cuff. All those tiny beads, woven together to create an image, just cry out to be worn. Creating patterns for flat bead weaving isn’t always easy. Even when you have the right graph paper, the task of filling in all those little squares to make a unique picture takes a lot of patience.

Luckily, we can turn to some of our favorite designers for help. Last month, Margie Deeb announced that she will be giving away two new PDF beading patterns every month, for bracelets, necklaces and tapestries! Available for brick and peyote stitch, or loom and square stitch, each one is a miniature work of art.
If you want to practice your pattern following skills, or just need to use up your stash of delicas, these patterns will provide plenty of beading pleasure. Visit MargieDeeb.com to see all of the bead patterns available, and subscribe to the newsletter to find out which to patterns will be free each month!
