LOVING THE USA 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.**

I love the colors of red, white and blue! But I love SHOWING OFF these colors even more, as I am PROUD of our UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! This PROUD balm cover would make a great gift for a VETERAN or a SCHOOL TEACHER or your favorite POLICE OFFICER! I know you will carry this proudly!! HURRAY for the USA!

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 gold, round seeds for the 3-bead picot trim. 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 4 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.

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 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 5 pages in your digital 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.
