Aten's Disk & Ankh - Amulet Bag or Small Tapestry

Akhenaten tried to unite his people under one God, the Aten. This inspired king of Egypt introduced the Aten as a symbol of the Creative Force in the universe, a God having no physical image. A solar disk, which projected many downward rays ending in human hands or Ankhs, served as a representation of the one God worthy of worship. You can make this pattern into a reversible bag that uses only seven colors of Delicas, and has Aten's Disk on one side and a reproduction of a 16th dynasty Ankh on the other. An alternate application would be to bead it as a small tapestry. The pattern includes graphs with symbols, material list, color legend, and two word charts-one for beading the piece as flat peyote, and the other for beading it as tubular peyote. Easy to bead for those who know peyote, this is a beginner's project. The strap and fringe for the bag is your choice; instructions for neither of these are included. Although the flat word map is for the peyote stitch, beaders can use brickstitch or Comanche stitch and the graph to create this bag.

The instructions offered will give you detailed steps to converting your flat peyote pattern to one that will generate a word map for tubular peyote. The step-up is clearly identified, and directions include how to start your piece.

    The directions also give steps for eliminating voids from your word map using MS Word, and format the word map so that it becomes easy to read. These directions are specifically for The Bead Cellar designing software and MS Word.

    The instructions have a small pattern with which to test and learn, as shown below. The method outlined can be used to create tubes of any size, however.

    Both beginners and experienced users of The Bead Cellar software will find these instructions helpful.

    So, although not exactly a pattern, but more like instructions on how to create patterns instructions, this inexpensive guide will help those who use The Bead Cellar designing software to manipulate the program to generate a tubular peyote pattern word chart. Currently, the Bead Cellar software program generates only flat peyote word maps.

    How to Read a DB Bead Pattern

    DB Bead is a piece of freeware developed by Damian Brunold to help beaders create bead crochet patterns. This tutorial explains how to use the output from the DB Bead program, as well as explaining the free pattern. Here is a link to the DB Bead Design Software program.

    These instructions explain the output of the DB Bead Design software program, how to read the graphs, and how to create a Word Map. Although the software is mainly written for bead crochet designs, the graphs created can also be used for peyote, brickstitch, looming, square stitch, and tubular peyote, tubular square stitch, and tubular brickstitch.

    Loomed Dog Collar

    Pamper your pet with this beaded dog collar. The instructions include a graph, word map, materials list, and fullly outlined details on how to create the beadwork and sew it to a purchased dog collar. By using strong fireline, you can be assured that the collar can take the wear and tear that will be inflicted on the finished piece by your active dog. I have made these for my Rottweilers, and they have gone swimming in them, run through the woods with them on, and have engaged in plenty of rough housing. The beadwork endured.
