2017 Thursday Bead Post #36: More Warped Peyote Squares

Last week I covered Warped Peyote Squares and this week I am going to cover another project that can be made with warped squares- A cute reversible bow!
One time I saw a bow that my friend Stephany had made. I asked and she said it was made of two warped squares. I took that knowledge and have made several since then :) This is the one I made for this post.

These bows have a little more holiday flair. I made them last year. 

These bows are made by connecting two warped squares together and attaching two brick stitch pieces- like in my "more Brick Stitch" post from April to them.

I took pictures, not great pictures, but here is the how to:


On the last row of the square, only put one bead in the corners, using the bead in the middle/point of the square as the bead for both sides.


Make a matching square that will form the other side of the bow. Use the middle/point bead as the bead for the second square. Both sides of the bow will be connected through this one single bead.



After they are connected together it will look like this. Weave in the thread and trim it.

Make a peyote strip long enough to cover the middle of the bow. (mine 3 wide and 13 rows long but any width that fits will work)

Wrap and zip together the peyote strip. Weave in and trim the thread.

Make brick stitch pieces- like in my "more Brick Stitch" post from April.

Twist the pieces into a spiral and ladder stitch them together.





Attach the ladder stitched ribbon piece to the Peyote strip covering the middle of the bow:






Next week I will be covering St. Petersburg Stitch.
