"SURPRISE" bead stitch

Step one ~stitch a row of beading. Step two ~ start criss crossing the thread of your choice across the beading. I went over the beading twice with each color . That is a total of 6 passes over the beading. Careful not to pull to tight as you will be cutting thru your thread layer's. Step three ~ you carefully cut thru your layer's of thread straight down the middle. Take your time or you may cut thru your beading thread. (if this happen's don't worry ~ just run new beading thread thru your bead's.) When you have cut thru all your layer's ~ fluff your thread and give it a little "haircut" to even thread's. Isn't it lovely!
