PEYOTE BEAD TUBES: These beads have a flag pattern:
With size 11 or delica seed beads, put on first row in this order:
(1.) One red, one white, one red, one white, one red, one white, one red, two blue, one white, two blue.
(2.) Second Row, work peyote stitch using the same color bead required to fill the "hole", with one exception, when you are at a blue section, alternate it with a white,(for the stars) then a blue on each subsequent row. The second row will begin with a blue bead.

Make a flat piece of peyote using this pattern for a total of 5 end beads on each side (10 actual rows) Your bead will be 12 beads long, by 5 beads wide. Then zip it up, using the "zip" technique. Most beading magazines have this tip in the back pattern section if you aren't familiar with it.
