Peyote Stitch in Beaded Banners

The peyote stitch is what is used to do most of our beading projects at Bead Shak!

The peyote stitch is used a lot in beading and is a stitch that once learned its easy to do. When first learning the peyote stitch it can become frustrating as the rows look uneven the tension isn't right and it just doesn't make any sense at all!

All of this is perfectly normal and with practice as with anything the tension does become equal on all rows and it will make perfect sense!

We have written instruction on how to do the peyote stitch that is used in doing our beaded banners, the instructions are free on the Bead Shak site under Tips and Techniques.

We have suggested here some of our projects that are a perfect for beginners just learning the peyote stitch or for anyone that wants a quicker and very festive project for the upcoming Christmas Season!

With only 34 days left until Christmas these projects will work up quickly, are a great gift giving idea and are just fun to do!

We also have all the supplies you need to do these projects, we don't need to leave the Bead Shak site, its quick and easy to order!

Beaded Coasters

Christmas Candle Beaded Coasters - Light up this Holiday Season with these festive coasters, the perfect gift for family or friends!

Peppermint Beaded Coasters - A traditional way to celebrate the holidays a dash of peppermint goes with everything!

Christmas Tree Beaded Coasters - The perfect gift for family and friends are these Christmas Tree coasters, cute and easy to do!

Solitare Beaded Coasters - This is the perfect gift for the card playing person in your life!

Beaded Door Hanger Patterns

Another great suggestion for you to start out with is our beaded door hanger patterns that match most of our beaded coaster sets and here are a few examples.

Christmas Candle Beaded Door Hanger - What a great gift this and the beaded coasters will make this holiday season!

Peppermint Beaded Door Hanger - With this door hanger and the coaster set this gift will be twice as sweet!

Christmas Tree Beaded Door Hanger - A great compliment to the Beaded Christmas Tree Coasters, fun, cute and quick!

Whatever pattern you choose to do for your first time out choose one that is on the smaller size with a pattern in it that is not to intricate, this way it will help to ensure your beaded project is a success the first time out!
