This tutorial assume that already made 1 or 2 sleeves from the two previous blog posts.
Materials & Tools
|Miyuki Delicas Size 10, Miyuki Seed Beads Size 11, KO or Miyuki Beading Thread Lilac, a bead Embroidery Needle Size 10 or 12 & a Mini-Clamp|
|1. Thread the needle. Clamp the thread at 24 inch. |
Load 6 Delicas, 3 Seed Beads & 6 Delicas, so a total of 15 beads.
|2. Work the first 3 rows as in the two previous tutorials. But you will be ending this row with a loose bead without a next final to anchor it to as in even-count peyote. |
Or see 'Alternate 2 Needle Start' in References listed below.
|3. To anchor this last bead, go through #1, then #2, then #3. Change direction and came back through #4, then #2, then #1.|
|5. Go through #5 and add the beads for the next row. |
The turn on the next edge will be just like in even-count peyote.
|6. Succeeding rows turns: Once again you end up with the last beads #4 in need of anchoring. Go through #1, #2, return through #3 and come out through #1.|
|9. Fold the rectangle into a tube and zip the two sides together catching the outer beads on each side.|
|10. Go around beads in a similar fashion as the odd count turn several times and melt the ends with a thread burner as in the two previous tutorials.|
11. Attach the sleeve to one side of the braid using one of the leftover thread by stitching it to the braid.
Here it is shown on the bracelet. The other 3 sleeves are alternative sleeves made with Miyuki Seed Beads Size 11 and Delicas Size 11. There are shown in the previous blog entries.
