Welcome to the 3-D beaded rounded heart pattern instructions! If you have any difficulty following this tutorial, please post a comment at the bottom of the page on which you are stuck, and I'll do my best to help!
Step 66:In the previous step, we finished crossing the small white seed bead labelled with a yellow dot. In this step, we are forming another circle of small white seed beads, consisting of 4 beads in total. So, we already have one bead available that is already in our pattern, and we will string through it, and then we will add 2 new seed beads to the pattern to complete the circle. So, take the end of the fishing line depicted by a black arrow, and string it through the small white seed bead that is labelled with a pink dot. This bead is already in your pattern, so don't add a new one! Just look for it! To the other end of the fishing line, add the 2 new small white seed beads to the pattern. The last new bead to be added is labelled with a green dot.
Step 67:Now cross the small white seed bead that is labelled with a green dot. You can see that we have formed our new circle of 4 small white seed beads. And you can also see that we are now looking once again at the side angle of the heart pattern, and not the front or the back. We are on the side again and we have formed a circle of beads along the side of the heart. We will now be moving towards the back side of the heart to do the same thing we just did on the front of the heart in the past few steps. This will unify our heart together into one piece.
Step 68:In this step, we are stringing through 3 beads that already exist in the pattern. We are attempting to unify our pattern and join all the loose ends together. You can see that this is a side view of the heart again, and that circle of 6 small white seed beads in the center of the image is the one we made a few steps ago when we first started working on the side of the heart to join the front and back together and make the second hump. So, take the end of the fishing line depicted by a red arrow and string it through the three seed beads that are labelled with turquoise dots. You don't have to do anything to the other end of the fishing line in this step.
Step 69:This step is very easy. Simply add the 2 new seed beads shown in the picture to the end of the fishing line depicted by a black arrow. Both of the new beads to be added are labelled with white X's.
Step 70:Now cross the last bead that was added, ie the small white seed bead that is labelled with a white X. Make sure both ends of the fishing line are crossing the bead in opposite directions. Now we are moving onto the back of the heart and doing what we just did on the front of the heart, ie. making the second hump of the heart pattern. Those two small white seed beads labelled with black dots are not the same ones from several steps ago, but they are the two corresponding beads on the back side of the heart. The other two were on the front side of the heart, but in the exact same location. They are like mirror images. And we will be making a circle of 5 small white seed beads by stringing through them and adding two new beads, just like before!
