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

WHOM of you loves bugs? WHAT? Yes, my favorite BUG is the LADY BUG! They do so very much for my garden and I so appreciate their gentleness when I am holding them. Here is my tribute to these wonderful BUGS!

Work as a FLAT odd count peyote pattern...then simply "zip" up the two ends and you have a tube, just the perfect size for most MAJOR name brand named tube lip balms like ChapStick and Burt's Bees.

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

I used 6 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.

At least these beady BUG LADIES don't BITE!


Within the pattern you will find full color photos of the finished piece; a DELICA bead legend (listing of colors used); a view of the pattern in REAL TIME; a full color graph large enough to read easily and a WORD CHART of the pattern. There are four delightful pages to this pdf download.

This pattern is in the form of a PDF file, a digital pattern, that will be readily available to you once your payment is received.

I don't mind if you make these to sell, but please give me the credit for the design within your listing of your finished piece. I would greatly appreciate it.

There are NO REFUNDS on digital files.
