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) »
I started out thinking about diamonds. When I finished this design, I saw a lovely Magic Carpet design. I love these colors together. Of course, you could use other colors if you want. The pen sleeve is made using flat odd count peyote stitch. Then zip it closed, slide it on the pen and you are done. This is made to fit the Pilot G2 pen or a Hidden Compartment Keychain. It will fit any item that has 1 cm outside diameter and 6 cm length. Would make a great gift.
