Pattern Only. Jazz up a plain tape measure with Delica beads for a unique and fun addition to your beading tool kit. This design features the words ‘Bead’ and ‘Measure’ as well as some sweet treats – an ice lolly and sweetie, with a love heart variation.
Simply follow the chart to bead around the outside of the tape measure. Previous knowledge of circular peyote stitch is necessary and some experience of following charts would be helpful.
