How to Bead: Branched Fringe

Posted by Mary Stori on Jun 15th 2016

Today Mary Stori, author of the All-in-One Beading Buddy, shares the branched fringe stitch, perfect to use within the body of a quilt or garment and along the edges or bindings. 


Work this method as a single fringe unit, in bunches, or a row. 

1. Come up at A, string a length of size 11 seed beads.

2. Pass needle up through next to last bead, B, travel 3 beads and exit at C.

3. String 4 more seed beads, re-enter at D, pass through "branch" and re-enter central stem at E. Repeat to top of original string, varying number of beads and location of side branch.
