I stitched 3 rows on 18 count linen. The first one is done in perle 5 and Caron Watercolors.
The second row is done in perle 5. I alternated the direction on the buttonhole stitch every four stitches.
In my last row I stitched large buttonhole stitches with beads in perle 5. Then I added the second part of the reversed buttonhole bar at both sides of the beads.
I stitched a curved reversed buttonhole bar on my second pebble.
The threads are perle 8 an Fuzzy Stuff by Rainbow Gallery.
