Tonight I taught a bead embroidery class. Laurie and Cindi are doing a fantastic job on their cuffs! ...The stiffened felt base is first embroidered. When finished, the black base will be trimmed and a brass cuff blank will be sandwiched between the embroidered base and Ultra suede. Then a beaded edging is added, attaching the base and suede. Pictured is an embroidered base from a previous project.
