I named it Parisian Stripes for a reason that is more obvious in real life. Some of you might guess why anyway.
This year's BFAC kit has more beads, more types, and more sizes than usual and I've already figured out most of how I want to use them, but I need to make a sketch and then diagram the base bead fabric.
