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

I am a quilter as well as a beader. My favorite fabric and quilt designer is Kaffe Fasset. His use of color is remarkable and it ALWAYS draws me in. Here is my homage to Kaffe.

I stitched the original using a size 12 beading needle and 4lb FIRELINE fishing line. I used size 11/0 Delica beads to create this pattern and size 15/0 seeds for the 3-bead picot trim. I suggest you add your beaded trim BEFORE zipping up the tube.

If you want to add a charm, as I did in the sample, I picked up 7 size 15/0 seeds and went into the Delica to either side. This is also optional. It is wise to add the charm before you zip up the back.

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, lying flat.


TIP: If your cover is slightly larger and slips on your lip balm tube, take a
piece or two of double-sided taped and adhere it to your lip balm tube. Then
slide on your beaded cover.


Within the pattern you will find full color photos of the finished piece; a DELICA bead legend (listing of colors used); a full color graph large enough to read easily and a WORD CHART of the pattern. FIVE fun, wonderful pages!!!

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.
