Quick crochet tip : adding beads to your chains [guest star : Christmas Tinycorn]

As I was already preparing my Christmas gifts (what? 3 weeks before isn’t considered like an “already”? But it’s a feat for me !), making a new tinycorn, I thought that I could make a very quick tutorial on how to add beads to a crochet chain !

Actually, it’s really very simple, you just need to thread a needle (which size will fit in a bead)

I turned the page over, looked for more explanations or pictures, then realized that the period was actually a full stop and that my little doll would sadly stay sluggish forever because I had no idea whatsoever how to do that.   >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
