A black kebaya top with little flowers was given celebrity status when Mus sewed on beads that made the flowers pop with sparkle.
She sewed on orange and fuschia Japanese beads using straight stitches carefully. Green beads for the leaves and stem. She never compromises by using other beads, only Japanese ones would do. She says, through experience, she learnt that the colour never runs when using Japanese beads.
They were sewn perfectly spaced. Only through practise could I achieve this, she said. Then practise it will be.
I would be very happy with myself if I could do this.
