Baptismal Beaded Baby Gown Instructions Designed by Artbeads
A child is only baptized once in their lives. Make sure you honor the occasion with the most elegant baptismal gown you can. This gown was a gift for Maggie and Sam's daughter. Use it as a guideline for a special occasion gown of your own. We do not recommend beading clothing for infants' daily wear.
Step one: Using a needle and thread, we simply strung Toho silver-lined crystal beads onto this dress. Our technique was to go back into the fabric after stringing each bead, but you can choose however you like. We used only one color of beads, but incase that color is not for you, we will list several other beads that would work just as well.
