4


STEP 2: Pin pattern piece to the lining side and trace outline with chalk pencil.

5


STEP 3: With the creative hammer, break the beads outside the drawn outline – this makes it possible to cut and sew accurately, later.

6


STEP 4: Cut out the shape along the chalk outline (do not add seam allowance!).

STEP 5: Stitch along cut edge with narrow, closely spaced zigzag stitches. Be careful! Stitch slowly, to prevent the needle from breaking.
