Beaded Crochet – ‘Dancing Fans’ Edging on Lime T-Top

Cotton Tank Tops in pretty flourescent colors!

Next step . . . choose a pattern.  Hmm.

I picked 'Dancing Fans'

Progress!  The fans are maded one-by-one, so I didn't have to stress about the length.  Just check as I went!

Looks pretty good . . . even if I do say so myself.

And without further ado, the finished product:

So, now a $2.00 t-shirt is worth considerably more!

Here’s a closer look at the ‘Dancing Fans’ beaded crochet edging:

I strategically tacked the motifs in place all around the neckline.

    i have the beading with edge book. and tried the dancing fans myself so i could embellish the sleeves of my dress. unfortunately it doesnt turn out as nice as yours. to be frank, i cant even make one! i just dont get the instruction. is there any way you could do a little tutorial. i didnt understand the part where it says ‘slip stitch the beginning chain’. i was like “which beginning chain?!”. that part got me stuck. since you’ve done it beautifully, could you please explain in a tutorial or something. pretty please 😦
