Another bead pattern added to the 1000s online, Rabbit Tube Ornament Pattern at http://www.threadabead.com/3591/1/Rabbit-Tube-Ornament-Pattern-Bead-Pattern
The Rabbit tube ornament is a simple and cute idea! The Rabbit design is beaded around a plastic hang tube (the ones which are a lot of beads such as delicas are sold in – you may have some lying around unused!). The ornament can be opened using the top cap and items placed inside and hung using the pink coloured hanging loop. So what should you put inside your tube? Well that's up to you! Here we have added 6 sweets, but other sweets, letters, money or even beads will work! As usual with ThreadABead featured patterns we give full detailed photographic instructions and in this pattern there are 29 detailed steps, making this pattern even suitable for beginners to beading. This ornament bead pattern is made using Japanese Miyuki size 11 Delica. A form of round peyote is used but full detailed instructions are given and no previous knowledge of the stitch is required. Please note the pattern may not work with any other size and type of beads. There are 12 colours in total and the finished beadwork is approximately 6.5 cm x 1.75 cm. Additionally a 1 x 8mm clear crystal AB bead and a Plastic Tube With Hang Cap 2 inches x 9/16 inch is also required (available from www.threadabead.com - our ref: 939) The bead pattern supplied is 14 pages and includes a colour chart of suggested delicas, a colour pattern and a numbered coloured pattern.
