This seam embellishment started off with a piece of lace that had a V like edge. I decided I was going to emphasise the V pattern and at the base of the lave worked two rows of straight stitches in a horizontal arrow stitch formation. These were worked in DMC 5 pearl thread.
At the top of the first row of arrow is a small detached chain stitch worked in DMC pearl 12 topped with a seed bead.
At the base of the V is a fly stitch which has a novelty disk like bead at the base. Below this is another fly stitch. Both fly stitches are worked in DMC pearl 5. On the bottom row of the arrow stitches I used a blue seed bead.
At the top of the lace using straight stitches I worked a diamond like formation in DMC pearl 5. Inside the diamonds I placed a bead and either side of the bead is two small straight stiches worked in DMC pearl 12. At the top of the diamond is a small flower shaped novelty bead.
Between the diamonds are 3 detached chain stitches and two straight stiches topped off with a seed bead. At the base of the V on the lace I added another seed bead.
