Bead embroidery

Malaysia is a great country for bead embroidery.  Beads are sold everywhere, and it's easy to find a skilled embroiderer to embellish your clothing for very reasonable prices.  I was browsing, saw and Myra Wood's online Craftsy class and decided to try it for myself.

I wouldn't really wear a bead embroidered dress, so the little drawstring bag was a good project for me.  Here's my version, embroidery finished, but not yet turned into a bag.
