Whipped beaded long tail chain stitch

TAST stitch 115 is beaded and whipped long tail chain stitch. TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday, an embroidery challenge at Pin Tangle.
I stitched this sample on my new fabric with a pretty design. It’s the same as the inside of my new etui or pen holder. First I stitched 5 beaded long tail chain stitches and then I whipped them 3 rounds on both sides of the beads. The thread is Stef Francis perle 5. I also added French knots with stranded floss at the edge of the star design. Just click the photo to take a closer look at my sample.
