The finishing touches for this piece include beading and binding. I wanted to use beads to depict the bird seed that is overflowing the cup, running all over the patio, and feeding the doves.
Here you see the top with beads laid out in their intended locations. It took a little bit of moving them around, but that is what I wanted. I put some marks on the top to remind my self of what I had in mind, because as soon as you pick the piece up to sew a bead down, they all roll off.
So the next step is the stitching and that's what I did.Here are some close ups showing the beads stitched down.
And that's it for the posts for this piece! Thanks for visiting my blog!
