Big Book of Indian Beadwork Designs (Dover Needlework)by Kay Doherty Bennett
Synopses & Reviews

Now you can create colorful, interesting designs of your own with this beadwork design treasury featuring scores of Indian motifs: buffalo, kachinas, eagles, feathers, lightning bolts, and more.
While many of the patterns appear in color-coded charts for beadwork, others can be used in appliqué and embroidery projects, as patterns for stained glass creations, and in numerous other crafts.
