BLUEBIRD OF HAPPINESS Lip Balm Cover Pattern

Regular price $ 5.25

You are purchasing a flat ODD count peyote digital pattern....NOT THE ITEM IN THE PHOTO!!

**THIS IS A FLAT ODD COUNT PEYOTE PATTERN. You will work FLAT, then zip up the piece to form the tube.** My covers fit most standard lip balm tubes, such as ChapStick and Burt's Bees...

Once I had created my BLUEBIRD OF HAPPINESS bracelet pattern, I just had to create a cover for my lip balm, using this adorable little bluebird!

I stitched the original using a size 12 beading needle and 4lb FIRELINE fishing line, size 11/0 Delica beads and size 15/0 round seed beads for the PICOT trim.

For BLUEBIRD, I chose some gold metallic size 15/0 round seed beads for the trim. I suggest you add your beaded trim BEFORE zipping up the tube. This step is optional.

When you've completed the design, you will "zip" up the back by going in and out of each side. I stitch the top/bottom beads twice to secure. Weave in your ends.

I used 7 colors making 33 columns and 66 rows using a total of 1221 beads.

The cover as designed measures 2 3/4 inches around by a 1 7/8 inches tall, laid flat.

Now my BLUEBIRD is truly HAPPY! He adorns my lip balm in STYLE!
