Corsets, Caps & Stays: Elegant Beaded Beads. What would happen, I wondered, if I used some of the fun, shaped beads that have come out since then? My new Criss-Cross Lantern beads are the result.
I promised my students that I'd send them the revised instructions, including this variation. And here it is, nearly a month later! I've heavily revised the original pattern, doubling the number of detailed bead diagrams and added all-new instructions for the Lantern Bead variation.
The Lantern Ornaments Beaded Beads PDF pattern is now available in my Etsy store. To celebrate its release, I'm offering a special deal.

** If you purchase a copy of my original Corsets, Caps & Stays book (either paperback or digital versions) now through December 15th, I will include the download code for my Lantern Bead PDF tutorial with your purchase.
** Also, for friends who already own a copy of my original Corsets book and are on my mailing list, my next newsletter update will include instructions for how you can claim your free copy of this new pattern.
To simplify my life, I've decided to post all free updates via my email newsletter from now on. There's only one of me and trying to keep track of who purchased what, from where, and when gets to be sooo crazy, especially since I have no way of tracking Amazon sales. Trying to track everything takes up a tremendous amount of time that I could otherwise use for designing, beading and writing. From now on, I'll post update opportunities in my email newsletters, along with simple instructions on how to claim your PDF updates for my patterns that you've previously purchased.
Not on my mailing list? Click here to sign up. Normally I send out one to two email updates per month, sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less. It all depends on what's going on.
This month, I've decided to get ambitious! My plan is to send out a special update every Wednesday, starting tomorrow for the next three weeks, with a new pattern addition or update code. If you already own the base pattern (or purchase it during my promotion), you'll receive the updates for free. Next week I'll be sending out an addition to my Snowflakes and Stars tutorial. This is my way of saying thank you for helping to make it possible to do what I do!
