I learned to sew before I went to school. My mother, grandmother and aunt sewed everyday. I ran a needle through my right index finger early on, but have never done it again. I am self taught in many craft fields. My most recent is beadweaving. I think I have finally found my passion. I love the feel and look of tiny cylinder beads worked in peyote stitch into a wonderful mosaic of colorful design. Other beads and other stitches are interesting and lovely.,But beadwoven peyote is what I enjoy most.View all patterns by designer (30) »
Red, white and blue check reminds me of summer picnics and cookouts. This bracelet would be lovely in any 3 colors. Add a lacy edge or leave it plain. Add the clasp of your choice or use the included instructions to make a matching toggle and loop with your beads. The pattern creates a beaded piece that is 6 1/2 inches long without the clasp and 1 inch wide. You can add more rows or skip a few to adjust the size. It works up very quickly and is repetitive so you may find you don't need to check the chart very often. This pattern is designed for Delica beads. Other beads may result in different dimensions.
