SUZANNE'S HANDY DANDY
PEYOTE STARTING STRIP - MEASURING TAPE

FREE PATTERN

Use this strip to start your Flat Peyote pieces easily. It also is useful to
measure how many beads it will take to go around an object, etc.

To use the strip you will attach a "stopper bead" and begin weaving as usual. When you make the first turn just skip over the bead on the starting strip and keep beading. Don't worry about the extra thread because you will remove it later. When you get ready to remove your piece just cut off the starting bead and gently, gently pull the piece away from the starting strip. You may have to clip the thread occasionally but it will come apart. When the pieces are apart reattach your thread and go back through the first couple of rows to make sure they are secure.
