I was hoping someone could help me find patterns or ebooks for beaded christmas baubles.
They are tough to find. I just finished one ornament from a pattern I found from Bead& Button. The pattern was 3.95, but that's really nothing, and once you get the first one finished, you all of a sudden get ideas for your own! They are lovely, aren't they? The desisgner is Cathy Lampole, if you want to search by designer. I'm not a fan of the netted covers, so I did do alot of searching.
you are right there is really not much about. i only know this one, the preciosa-Company is giving by the way lots of sweet twinbead tutorials.
If you're not looking for free patterns, Michelle Skobel has a lot of ornament cover designs. Her website is www.michelleskobel.com. There is also Kelly Wiese at the Bead Parlor - beadparlor.com - she has a beautiful cover that she just released the kit for. Finally, for some unique ornaments, see Paula Adams website - http://www.beadpatterns-paulaadams.com/. Since Paula's ornaments are basically all 3D, they are somewhat involved, but they are beautiful.
There is a thread going on in the Readers Showcase on page 3 called "Beaded Ornament Covers". There are several links there you can use.
Greetings from Karin.
Hi, Andrea. I tried to reply to your post the other day but apparently had some links and so my post has never appeared. Here are a couple of places you can look to find ornament covers -- The Bead Parlor, Michelle Skobel and Paula Adams. There is also Deb Moffett-Hall and some of her patterns are available at bead-patterns.com. If you search for each of these on the internet, you should be able to come up with their websites. Paula Adams patterns are quite elaborate and not really ornament covers, but her ornaments are beautiful. Good luck.
