A Note on Bead Sizes and Brands:

The size and brand of bead you use may affect the final look of the pattern.  Miyuki Delicas and Toho beads look the best and have a classy feel.  I prefer the Perler Mini Beads for my beadwork.  They brick stitch really well and have a fun and perky look.

Brick Stitch Beading Tip:


For your base row, start with the row that has the most beads.  Then, brick stitch up the pattern.  Once the top portion is complete, move your thread down to the base row and brick stitch the bottom portion of the pattern.  This pattern can be beaded with brick stitch, peyote, and gourd stitch beading techniques.
