Have a heart!

The third design in my Festive Tea Light range (Love Hearts) launched in 2022 and I have now published the pattern for the hearts separately, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

The Have A Heart pattern is available to download for £4.50, or you can order a printed copy for the same price (our usual P&P charges apply).

The heart measures about 1.75mm (3/4″) wide and about 1.75mm (3/4″) high, and can be used for many things, including ear rings, key chains, bag charms. I’m sure you will have other wonderful ideas, and feel free to share on our Facebook page.

This 8-page pattern introduces tubular peyote with herringbone increases. Full instructions with diagrams, photographs are provided, but previous experience of general beading and peyote stitch in particular is essential. You will mainly use size 11 seed beads in 2 colours with 1 x size 8 seed bead in the contrast colour for the tip. The heart also works well using size 8 seed beads, with 1 x size 6 for the tip.

The Love Hearts pattern is £9.95, and available as a full kit (including pattern) for £21.50.
