I often get asked the question, “why do my beads twist or flip when I do my first side stitch?” THIS IS WHY!!!! It happened to me today so I stopped and grabbed my camera so I could show you guys! Basically what happens is when you do the side stitch your needle catches a little piece of the drop out and as soon as you pull it tight it will flip the bead towards you. I opened up the weft so you can see exactly what’s going on. Just pull it out, place a horizontal clip for added stability, and keep on stitching!
