Included with each pattern is a list of suggested Miyuki Delica bead colors to use, as well as the Delica beads used to create the models in the photographs. A beaded needle case makes a great travel project because of its smaller size. This wonderful book is a must for all bead-weavers. Sized for needle cases, the patterns can be used to make amulet bags as well. The book opens with complete instructions and diagrams for even-count tubular peyote stitch, as well as instructions and diagrams for flat-round peyote stitch used to make end caps for a needle case. Measurements are given in standard and metric. The instructions are clear enough for a beginner, and most of the book is filled with patterns for those stitchers who dont need the instructions.Each pattern contains a list of suggested Miyuki Delica and beads to match the colors of the pattern, but feel free to make your own selections. Titles of the patterns show you the variety of designs.The size of these projects is for todays busy life. Smaller than amulet bags, needlecase projects can be finished quickly. Their smaller size also lends them to being great travel projects, easy to pack up and take with you at a moments notice.Photographs of models of many of the patterns adorn the books covers.
