DIY Miyuki mini summer fruitsDiscover these easy and quick to make mini summer fruits in brick stitch.  They are ideal for beginners and experts alike. I have been inspired by the recent patterns proposed by the talented creative @teaforyoubijoux on Instagram which are very cute small characters from a mobile phone game. The small size of the weaving make them very easy to do. I played with these bright colours to make this designs as joyful as possible. As you know, I also like to find a purpose to my creations so I will show you here how to turn them into simple stud earrings.

2. Assembly

Once you have prepared your beadworks, just put a fair amount of glue on the flat circle of the stud earrings and place the beadwork on it.

Make sure it is well centred and leave it to dry for 2 hours.
