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

**Knowledge of flat odd count peyote is needed as no instructions for this stitch are within this pattern.
You will work FLAT, then zip up the piece to form the tube.**

My beaded covers fit most standard size lip balm tubes such as Burt’s Bees and Blistex. If you find your completed cover to be loose on your lip balm tube, simply add some double stick tape to the balm tube and replace your cover.

If you know my work, then you know I love COLOR. FULL ON COLOR. I wanted to see if I could create "motion" and "texture" using color! Here is my experiment using lots of opaque colors. COLOR VIBE certainly is just that. A vibrance of COLOR!

I stitched the original using a size 12 beading needle, 4lb FireLine fishing line, size 11/0 Delica beads and Miyuki  size15/0 round seed beads in TRANSPARENT TOPAZ AB #15-257 for the optional PICOT trim.

I used 14 colors making 37 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, lying flat!

I do believe this is my FAVORITE lip balm cover design. This is truly ME! Designed for you with LOVE!


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. Four pages of COLORFUL FUN await you in this pdf download pattern.

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.
