2017 Thursday Bead Post #37: St. Petersburg stitch

This week I am going to post about St. Petersburg Stitch. I learned how to do this stitch from my friend Stephany. She has a blog full of beady fun and was nice enough to make a "how to" chart for my blog this week! I made two things this week, first a cute little strip of single St. Pete made with the new size 11 Miyuki picasso finished seed beads. I think they are beautiful 💕 I might be in love with these beads....
  
I used two colors to easily identify the single bead and the turn bead.

As I mentioned earlier, Stephany was nice enough to create this chart on the threadpath for St. Pete stitch.


Click on over and visit her blog- show her some love :) There are a bunch of other tutorials for St. Petersburg stitch, but I find the numbered chart and threadpath is enough to understand how to do this stitch. If you enjoy this stitch I highly suggest Googling St. Pete leaves, they are beautiful!

Stephany was also the inspiration for the other project I made this week. A Double St. Pete bracelet made with SuperDuos. Stephany has blogged in the past about how she made several Double St. Pete bracelets using seed beads and SuperDuos. I borrowed her idea and made this bracelet in fall colors. I love it. I am going to wear it next week on Thanksgiving.


I stitched one side using the SuperDuos as my turn bead, then used the second/empty hole of the duo as the turn bead for the other side. 
  

If nobody told you, next Thursday is Thanksgiving which means I will be spending time with my family and being thankful, not blogging. I will be back to posting beading fun on November 30th! I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!
