Item details

Jazz up a plain tape measure with Delica beads and your own personalised design, for a unique and fun addition to your beading tool kit.

This tutorial consists of a blank chart for you to customize to create for your own tape measure. Full instructions allow you to turn your pattern into a complete beaded tape measure; with 2 variations - full or part covered.

Simply print off the chart in page 2 and colour in your design. Then follow the chart and instructions to bead around the outside.

Previous knowledge of circular peyote stitch is necessary and some experience of following charts would be helpful. Suitable for Intermediate/Advanced beaders.

This project was inspired by my popular Sea Measure workshop, as students wanted to take the skills they had learnt to create personalised designs themselves.

The tape measures shown in the photos are for inspiration purposes only, please note the only chart included in the instructions is a blank one for your own design.

Suitable for intermediate beaders.

Materials required:
- Size 11 Delicas
- 8mm flat back stone or crystal for button (optional)
- Tape measure - this needs to be plain, with no edge, measuring 50mm across. Metro-brand ones work well, as well as Hemline retractable tape measures.
- Beading thread, needles and scissors

Tutorial includes step by step diagrams and easy to follow instructions.

While I am happy for you to sell any items you make using this tutorial, I do ask that you credit me as the designer and I kindly ask that you do not copy, teach or share my pattern.
