Step 41

Step 41:This step is pretty easy, just add 2 new beads to the end of the fishing line depicted by the red arrow. Ie, add the 2 beads shown, first a large blue seed bead, then a small white seed bead, which is labelled with a red dot.


Step 42

Step 42:Now simply cross the small white seed bead labelled with the red dot. Make sure the ends of your fishing line are approaching it from opposite directions, as usual. We're now going to form a new circle of small white seed beads again.


Step 43

Step 43:So in this step, we are stringing the beads to form a circle of small white seed beads that consists of 5 beads. We have 2 available small white seed beads that we can string into our circle that are already present in our pattern. And then we will be adding 2 more new beads to make up the balance. Take the end of the fishing line depicted by the red arrow and string it through the 2 small white seed beads labelled with green X's. These two beads are already in your pattern, so look for them! To the other end of the fishing line, add 2 new small white seed beads. The second new small white seed bead to be added is labelled with a pink X.


Step 44

Step 44:Now simply cross the small white seed bead labelled with the pink X, that you just added to the pattern. Now, in this picture, notice that I circled a set of beads with red ink. That is an anchor point for you because in the next picture, the pattern turns and so I want you to have an anchor point to see where it turned and where we are in terms of orientation of the model. The small white seed bead labelled with a blue X is the same in this picture and the next one, but you can see that it turned a bit and is facing the side in the next picture. I hope that helps to orient your beaded heart pattern!


Step 45

Step 45:Now that we have formed our circle of 5 small white seed beads, we want to further surround it by more beads, so we are going to be stringing through some existing beads in the pattern that are overlapping with our current section. To take the end of the fishing line depicted by the black arrow and string it through the 3 seed beads labelled in orange dots. They are already in your pattern, so look for them! You don't have to do anything with the other end of the fishing line in this step.
