Boy's Handprint

This is the class sample for a class I am teaching next weekend. In a previous post, I showed a print for a 3 y/o girl. This one is much easier for a beginner in bead embroidery. It only uses the back stitch. I found all these fun charms for little guys and couldn't resist them. I have several ladies anxious to do this. It should be lots of fun. It's a good way to introduce people to bead embroidery.

This is a darling project, Arline! I can tell how much fun you had doing it, too.

And I want to tell you that I think the new photo on the banner of your blog is awesome!

Thanks, Kathy.

The photo is one I took up in the high country of the Sierras some years ago. I used to be way into scenic photography.

It's funny that you are beading a hand. My study group is doing a round robin project and one of the women couldn't decide what shape picture she wanted beaded. As she stood up, she placed her hand on her fabric and happened to look at it. You got it, she traced her hand.

Now, it's gone through three other members who are adding their own bead embroidered ideas to her picture.

Love the boys hand - it's really cool!!

I think the idea of using a hand for a round robin is excellent. What fun it could be.

Arline, this is a perfect first project! I remember when I was first starting out and this would have been just the thing.

I wanted to thank you for adding a link to my blog on yours as I have had visitors because if you!

Smiles! Jo Anne
