9.27.07 Hidden Mickey brick stitch

I'm heading to the Long Island Bead Society this weekend to lead a whole day of brick stitching. Can't wait! Brick stitch is one of my fave techniques, how about you all out there? It's easy, increases and decreases nicely without too much zigzagging, and forms a wonderfully firm fabric of beads. I'm teaching flat, tubular, circular, THE WORKS.

Here's my most ambitious circular brick piece so far. It started as a new way to work up some more modern takes on The Mouse Ears shapes. I Love WDW, but I am not into cutesie mousies. So here I ended up. Can you find all the hidden Mickeys?

  1. I love this necklace. I can't count how many times I've tried my needle and thread at circular ANYthing (peyote, brick, square) . . . it always comes out wonky ;( How I wish Long Island had been closer!
