Barcode # 1 G2 Pen Sleeve Pattern

(5) Name: 'Jewelry : Barcode # 1 G2 Pen Sleeve Pattern
Barcode # 1 G2 Pen Sleeve Pattern
Barcode # 1 G2 Pen Sleeve Pattern

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Even count flat peyote stitch beadweaving

Pattern Description:

This innocent looking striped pattern is the barcode for the number 1. It is easy to stitch because once you have finished the first 4 rows, all of the other rows follow the same stripe pattern. I made it using black and white Delica beads. You could change it and use your favorite colors.The pen sleeve is made using flat even count peyote stitch. Then zip it closed, slide it on the pen and you are done. This is made to fit the Pilot G-2 pen or a Hidden Compartment Keychain. It will fit any item that has 1 cm outside diameter and 6 cm length. It would make a great gift for someone special, man or woman. It gives the message, "You are my # 1." but only you and the recipient will know the special meaning.
