I have developed patterns for several Military Combat Ribbons, using Peyote Stitch you can make Tube Beads for use in Chokers, Necklaces, Bracelets and the like. I have also found a new site that has a Lot of Tutorials and patterns for different Craft Techniques. It is called Craftsy.com and I have a Pattern shop on there which you can find at this link:
I have made these Military Tube beads available in my pattern shop in a Free PDF file, there are 8 patterns including: Vietnam Veteran, Korean Veteran, Desert Storm/Saudi Veteran, Iraq Veteran, Afghanistan Veteran, Purple Heart Award, National Defense Service Ribbon, and Stars & Stripes Forever. The file consists of a Labeled Pattern and Bead Chart for the Delica #11 Colors and amount of beads for each pattern. You will need to know Basic Peyote Stitch and how to 'Zip' the bead, but Please feel free to contact me if you have any problems with any of it. There are several other Brick Stitch Earring patterns I have there from doodles I designed.
