Last month I made this large French Beaded Poinsettia garland and I designed some pine needles and pinecones to put in as fillers. I'd had a few hanks of those green bugle beads sitting around my craft room for a while and couldn't figure out what to do with them. Turns out they make great pine needles!
Well, everyone who saw it loved the pine needles and pinecones, and many were asking for the pattern. So, I decided to go ahead and produce a PDF version of my pattern. It's a smaller project that only requires two easy to learn French Beading techniques, so it didn't take a long as my rose and gerbera tutorials.
The PDF is now available for purchase as an instant download here. This is the first pattern that I have offered exclusively on my website, and so far it's going well. :)
Just a note, because of the EU's new laws digital goods now require VAT to be applied based on the customer's location instead of the seller's. So, if you are located in a member state of the EU you will see your country's VAT rate added at checkout. Because of this, I decided to reduce the base prices of my patterns so they can still be affordable for my International customers. Some countries are asking for 28% and that's a lot extra to pay.
Hope you are all enjoying the New Year!
