Artbeads Cafe Giveaway – Brick Stitch with TOHO Aiko Seed Beads

Brick stitch is one of our favorite bead weaving techniques and we’ve got a great Artbeads Cafe episode all about the ins and outs of brick stitch! With this episode, you’ll see how to start the stitch with a ladder stitch, how to increase and decrease the stitch, and even how to move your thread to the right position when necessary. After watching the episode, make sure to read to the end of this post to find out how to enter for your chance to win TOHO Aiko seed beads to start your own brick stitch creations.

This video is a great way to get started with a simple technique that allows you to make all kinds of shapes, just like the examples shown! Looking for the Brick Stitch PDF Diagram Cheri mentions at the end of the video? You can find it right here. Print it out as a handy guide while you stitch. If you want to make your own brick stitch designs, like Cheri’s kitty or Cynthia’s geometric diamond, make sure to download and print our free seed bead graph paper.

With this graph paper, you can color in your own designs. We have graph paper for different stitches and you can also choose between graph paper for cylinder or round seed beads. It’s a great way to sketch out the seed bead ideas you have floating in your head.

Our favorite seed beads to use when making brick stitch creations are TOHO Aiko seed beads. These cylinder seed beads are so precise and consistent they are nicknamed, “The Perfect Bead”. We want to give away these beads to you! One lucky winner will receive six different TOHO Aiko colors, perfect for brick stitching. To enter, just follow the prompts below and make sure to leave a comment in the comments section with what you would brick stitch using these beads.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

We’ll pick a winner on June 27th, 2019. Good luck everyone!

    I have watched a previous video about “seed bead cuties”. I have made “Horten“ the elephant for my sister, and a cactus for my niece. I have made a bunny and 3 chicks for a purse fob at Easter time. Making these little creations are so addictive, I love it! Using the Aiko beads would be a huge treat. I attended the Bead & Button show for the first time this year, and used the Aiko beads for the first time…AWESOME beads! I want to make something for my other niece next, she likes Marvel characters, Batman is a favorite. So, I am thinking a bat…I can hardly wait! 😊🦇🐘🐇🐥

    Thank you for the wonderful giveaway! I have never tried the Toho Aiko seed beads and would love to have a chance to do so. I’d like to try graphing a pair of diamond-shaped earrings, or that cute little bluebird of happiness pattern!

    I have watched a previous episode about “seed bead cuties” and I love making them! I have made many “cuties” already, using the printable graph paper. My favorite “cuties” include a rooster, a hen, and a cute puppy face! I would love to make more, and using Aiko beads would make it so much easier!

    I haven’t made anything yet using the taho aiko seed beads. But I would like to make something similar to the watering can pin. I purchase alot of beads from art beads and always been satisfied with the beads ordered and the fast way in delivering them.

    I haven’t learned brick stitch yet, so I would probably use these to make one of the designs from the website first 🙂
