Step 16: 'String 1 size 11° and pass through the next bead from Step 15. Skip the next space by directly-passing through the next bead from Step 15 (don't pass into the beads of Step 14). Repeat from * around to add 6 beads total. Pull tightly. Pass through the first bead added in this s

Step 17: Work around in tubular peyote for a of 6 beads. Pull tight. Pass through the first bead added in this step.

Step 18: Repeat Step 17. The round should form a tight circle. Reinforce the circle a few times and weave the thread up to the base of the bag. Weave through several beads to secure, tie a knot if desired, pass through a few more beads, and trim.

Step 19: Start a new thread on the face of the bag. Create your own embellishment, making a dangle of simple and looped fringe using size 11° and dccorative beads.

Tassels

Step 20: Add fringed tassels as desired using the size 15°s and accent beads. The bags pictured have five long tassels and eight shorter tassels.

Strap

Step 21: Anchor a 3-yard length of thread to one side at the top of the bag. String some large decorative beads and a section of size I5°s mixed in with some size 1 l°s to add texture. Repeat this sequence until you reach half of the desired strap length. End with a large bead sequence.

String a clasp and pass back through the large bead sequence. 'String a seed bead section and pass through the next large bead sequence. Repeat from * until you reach the bag. A third strand of seed beads may be added. Add fringes and embellishments as desired along the strap. Adding extra embellishment helps reinforce the strap with the extra thread passes.

Step 22: Repeat Step 20 on the other side of the bag. At the point where you added the clasp on the previous strap, you will add a series of looped sections using size 15° and size 11° beads! Figure 4). The loops should be big enough for your clasp to fit through—they make the length of your bag strap adjustable. The sample shows nine loops; the more loops you add, the more the length of the strap can vary. Reinforce the loops at least three times by repeating the thread path.

Step 23: Finish the end with several larger or decorative beads.

Do you have a soft crocheted or knitted bag that you're itching to give a handle? Here's a unique solution on how to work a beaded handle from something soft.

Materials

Assortment of beads

2 beads with large holes to fit over crimp beads

Crimp beads

Purse's yarn

Soft Flex beading wire

Glue

Size B beading thread in color to match bag 2 jump rings

Lanyard clip or lobster claw clasp Notions

Crochet hook appropriate for yarn Size 12 beading needle Crimping pliers

Step 1: Crochet a single chain rope with the purse's yarn. You will double this rope to make part of the handle. When you're planning the length of the handle, take into consideration that in addition to the doubled rope there will be 12" of beading.

Step 2: Sew a jump ring l" down from the top on each side on the inside of your purse.

After crocheting the rope, double it and attach the ends to one another by weaving the tail into the chain and dabbing a little glue on the bottom of the woven ends.

Step 2: Sew a jump ring l" down from the top on each side on the inside of your purse.

Step 3: Take the chain rope and fold it in half with the woven end near the center (top).

Step 4: Using a 10" piece of beading wire, string a crimp bead and pass through one of the chain rope's ends. Pass back through the crimp bead and squeeze.

Step 5: String the beads for 6", using the large-holed bead first. The first bead needs to go over the crimp and hug securely to the crocheted handle, but it shouldn't be so large that it passes up the crocheted section.

Step 6: String a crimp bead and a lanyard clip or lobster claw. Pass back through the crimp bead and several of the beads on the wire. Pull tight and squeeze the crimp bead (Figure 1).

Step 7: Repeat Steps 5-7 for the other end of the crocheted rope chain.

Step 8: Clip the handle to the rings in the purse.

This evening bag is made with the contemporary minimalist in mind. There's just enough room for lipstick, credit card, and enough cab fare to get home. Store the bag in an embellished silk organza pouch to protect it when it's not out and about.

The design was influenced by a textile pattern. It has rhythm, balance, repetition, and a wonderful play of color, in addition to a rich texture of beads created by mixing matte, shiny, AB, and lined beads. The ensemble received an honorable mention at the Great Northern Beadwork 2002 Exhibit juried by Jo Wood.

Pattern B: 14 seed beads, 3mm glass bead, 5 seed beads, 4mm glass bead, 5 seed beads, 3 mm glass bead, 16 seed beads, 4mm glass bead, seed bead.
