Rainbow Star Bead Netted Doily

from Violetbead's Tutorials & Patterns
(11) Name: 'Other : Rainbow Star Bead Netted Doily
Rainbow Star Bead Netted Doily
Rainbow Star Bead Netted Doily

Pattern Description:

LOVE rainbows! When I was a little girl, my mom taught me how to remember the colors of the Rainbow - Roy G Biv: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo & Violet! So here is my rainbow betted coaster. You can make it in any colors you want! Large photos with lots of text to get you to a successful result the first time for an intermediate beader.

These are in the style of beading seen in the Stenboden books and the Olaf Beading books from Europe and Australia.

I would not think this a beginner pattern. If you have done my pumpkin, my snowman or my lady bug, then you can make this piece.

This is a netting style I learned in the Olaf books from Australia but the style is from Scandinavia.

Difficulty - Intermediate beaders.

Save paper and ink - Read your pattern on your favorite tablet or e-reader. I keep all my tutorials on my iPad so I can have them with me all the time. I often beaded from my laptop on the table next to where I bead before I had the iPad.

All my tutorials and patterns are designed for you to use to create beadwork. I give my permission for you to make and sell things made from my patterns and tutorials. I will never charge more for a tutorial giving permission to sell things made from my stuff. I think it's such a rip off to do that. If you wish to teach my patterns or projects, please contact me and we will work out something.

This is a tutorial for electronic delivery only. This is for your personal use. You may make items and sell them but please do not share or sell my tutorial.
