Bead embroidery: Couching, spot stitch, or two-thread applique

Couching

This stitch uses two separate needles and thread.

  1. On the top surface of the fabric, pick up 10 to 12 beads with one needle, and align them on top of the fabric.
  2. With the other needle, sew up through the fabric between the second and third beads. Pull the thread over the base thread between the beads, and sew down through the fabric on the other side of the thread. Repeat along the row of beads at two- or three-bead intervals to anchor the base thread to the fabric.
  3. When the first section of beads is anchored, repeat steps 1 and 2.
