Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Add some color to your wooden needle case with this purple and green diamond pattern of peyote bead weaving and attach a simple chain to make sure that you never lose the cap!
Instructions
You will also need a toothpick or scrap of wire for this project.
  1. Please watch our video: How to do Flat Odd Count Peyote. Start by following the pattern image to make large body portion of the needle case. Then follow the thin pattern to make the cap portion of the case. Do not trim or tie off your ends yet.
  2. Once you have both pieces, please watch our video: How to Wrap a Needle Case in Peyote Stitch Bead Weaving. In this video you will see how to add glue to the case, wrap the peyote around it and stitch it up. You will also see how to tie off your threads and how to add on the chain to the top and body of the case.
