6 great seed bead stash busters for stitchers

Keep your creative juices flowing while you are inside with FREE downloadable projects.


With so many of us inside, stash-buster projects are a great way to keep stitching with limited supplies on hand. Chances are you have leftover seed beads stashed away from previous designs. Gather those beads and take stock of what you have. You will want to keep different size beads separated, but you might need to mix colors and finishes. Now you are ready to start stitching these projects. Just click on the name of the project!
