What do reviewers say about Bead Flowers and Wedding Bouquets?
‘Katie’s ebook is absolutely essential for anyone wanting to make French beaded flowers. She covers all the basics very well and the tutorial videos mean Katie is on hand to demonstrate as often as you need.
The patterns are easy to follow and result in a beautiful selection of popular flowers and leaves suitable for use not just in wedding bouquets but also corsages or any other display you care to imagine.
I’ve got other books on French Beading techniques but what really sets this one apart is not only the inspired inclusion of video clips but the fact that it goes far beyond just how to make a single flower. Once you have learned the basic techniques and made the individual flowers she goes on to show you how to finish the stems neatly and how to design and assemble your flowers into a beautiful bouquet.
This is the book I’ve been waiting for. My collection of flowers is now growing fast and I’ll definitely be following Katie’s instructions as I come to construct my own wedding bouquets and button holes from them over the next few months.‘ – BP on Amazon.co.cuk
