Attaching beads individually takes quite a lot of time, especially if you pull the needle all the way from the front of the cloth to the back with every stitch. So when you want to go quickly, sew the beads on.
Work from right to left if you’re right-handed, and left to right if you’re left-handed.
Stick the needle straight down at the end of the previous stitch.
Under the fabric, use your left hand to move the tip of the needle until it is one bead length in front of the current bead. Push it halfway through and stop.
Again use your left hand to fold the fabric up until the needle is vertical.
With your right hand, dab into your tupperware lid of beads. Some beads should stick to your finger. Roll the extras off.
Put the bead on the vertical needle.
Unfold the fabric.
And pull the needle all the way through.
