Beaded Needle Cases

Thanks for the compliments on Christine's pay-it-forward gift. I used a pattern from a book called "Beaded Favors" by Jennie Might. I purchased it at Shipwreck Beads several years ago in Washington, and I think it's still available.

If you want to have a go at this on your own, there are several good tutorials for peyote stitch on line - you'll need tubular peyote for the sides of the case and flat round peyote stitch for the top and bottom. There are some free peyote stitch patterns available on the net as well.
