|Patriotic Free Bead Patterns|
Patriotic Bead patterns have been popular for a long time, but I've had a lot of people asking for bead patterns and beading ideas using red, white and blue, so I've refined my list of great Patriotic Bead patterns. Hope you find something you would like to make!
In the "easy" category, we have the cute and fast A Bit of Beaded Bunting earrings. These make a great project for the beginner and if you have not worked in Brick stitch, here's a little How to do Brick Stitch tutorial.
Cheryl Assemi designed this beautiful Flag Amulet pattern. It remains one of my all-time favorite Amulet designs.
From Karen Jenner we have a wonderful flag for loom and one for Peyote. These would be good mini-tapestries or would work as the front of back of an Amulet bag, too.
Leslie Pinkston offers this cute Red White and Blue Bracelet with a heart of gold. Another one of my favorites, this would make a wonderful gift for anyone with family overseas right now.
Sherri Burns has designed this lovely Eagle for us, too.
Pat Savu has designed a wonderful Yellow Ribbon to show that we are waiting for the return of our troops from the Middle East.
The always excellent folks at Bead Patterns.com have a wealth of great Patriotic pieces for sale. The prices are reasonable and the designs and service are always excellent. Bumble Beads has designed a great Flag Pin in Peyote and in Loom. You might want to pick up a copy of Brenda Whitehead's Purple Mountains Majesty. What a gorgeous design! Another beauty is gorgeous Flag Choker form Charlene Hughes, AKA BeadyBoop. This is one lovely necklace design. And, leave it to Sigrid Wynn-Evans to come up with a slightly unusual Flag Bracelet. I'll make this one for sure.
So, as you "Make Way for the Red, White and Blue" remember to "Wave that Flag, Wave it Wide and High" and have fun beading these great Patriotic Bead Patterns!
