Peyote Stitch Tutorial



  • Peyote Stitch Instructions
This tutorial from PotomacBeads demonstrates how to use various seed beads to do peyote stitch. Peyote stitch is a bead weaving concept which allows beads to be laid in various patterns with needle and thread. You can use various sizes of beads including delicas, 6/0, 8/0, 11/0, 15/0, triangles, cubes, and more. This is also a useful class to learn for many other seed beading or beadweaving classes, including seed bead toggles, circular peyote, embellishing, diagonal peyote, hollow peyote, maga-scale bracelet, and more!
