You are purchasing an even count peyote digital pattern....NOT THE ITEM IN THE PHOTO!!

LAYLA was designed while I was listening to Eric Clapton singing the song of the same name! Definitely one of my favorites and I hope this song reflects the joy I felt while listening to Eric sing.

Worked in even count peyote, I’ve used size 11/0 Delica beads and size 15/0 (gold metallic) seeds for the trim and closure at the bottom! Simply stitch the design, zip up the ends together and add a few seeds at the bottom to fold flat and then a few seeds at the top for some great trim.

I always use size 4lb Fire Line fishing line. The finished size of this sleeve, zipped up is 2 1/4 inches across by 3 3/4 inches tall, which includes the trim. This sleeve will hold about 5 to 7 regular size business cards, depending on their thickness and will hold a couple of gift cards or credit cards as well.

In even count peyote, there are 70 columns and 132 rows. I used 15 colors for 4570 beads.

I am usually a GRAPH beader! I have added a graph to this pattern, but I found it much easier to stitch from the WORD CHART which is also included. Having over 4500 beads, this is a massive pattern to read from the graph...just something I found out working this pattern.

I hope you enjoy working this pattern! It's something I've wanted to create for some time now. I'm glad I took the plunge!



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; an up close shot of the trim: a full color graph large enough to read easily and a WORD CHART of the pattern. NINE FULL PAGES of fun!

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.
