Kick off your holiday crafting with this whimsical Christmas Elf beading pattern. This elfin girl & boy set would make a merry pair of earrings, adorable pendants or festive bag charms.

Please continue to read the product description and FAQ section below for more details about this pattern. Thank you!

You'll be able to bead the elves using the peyote stitch bead weaving technique or turn the pattern to the side and make this in the brick stitch method. I prefer beading in the brick stitch technique. Though quite petite, and a fast project, bead weaving experience is recommended because no instructions are provided.

In this 1 page digital download file, you will be provided with a photo of the completed elves as a reference, bead legend (with bead colors & count) a bead graph (shows bead placement for stitching) and a list of recommended supplies (supplies not included). Please see photo above of sample PDF pattern file.

Supplies list includes (but are not limited to) the following:
* Delica beads, 11/0
* Fireline thread
* Beading needle

All of these supplies may be substituted but the final product may differ from the sample.

Feel free to change the bead colors.

Approximate Measurements:
Girl Elf: 1.8 cm wide x 3.5 cm tall
Boy Elf: 1.5 cm wide x 3.5 cm tall
Bead Count: 290
Color Count: 6

Frequently Asked Questions

What does your pattern include?

*Suggested Supply List that typically includes 6lb FireLine thread, Delica seed beads 11/0, size 12 beading needle
*Bead Legend - includes bead colors with reference to manufacturer's bead no. and bead count.
*Photo of a completed project so you can see an actual finished piece.
*Bead Chart - graphical image of bead placement. The numbers on the bead chart corresponds with the numbers shown on the bead legend.

Patterns DO NOT include instructions unless stated in the description.

Do I need to know how to bead weave when I purchase a pattern?

Yes. You will need to know basic bead weaving stitches such as ladder stitch, peyote stitch and brick stitch. You will also need to know how to add thread (if your existing thread is too short), how to end your beadwork and how to add attachments or connector beads if making jewelry.

If needed, I will try my best to help you along by providing you with tips and video links. Please take time to view this youtube link if you are new to beadweaving, bit.ly/learnbrickstitch.

Your listing states "Peyote" (or Brick Stitch) bead pattern. Do I need to stitch my beadwork using the particular method stated?

Definitely not! Use either Peyote or Brick Stitch to weave your design. Many of my patterns are created on a Peyote Stitch chart because it's my personal preference. However, when actually beading my piece, I turn my pattern sideways and stitch using the brick stitch technique.

Why don't you show a "starting point" on your patterns?

You can start anywhere you want to. Some people have told me that they like to start from the center moving outwards while others like to start at the edge. I usually start at the widest/tallest point or on the row/column that I plan to attach a connector bead (so I can get that out of the way first).

Why do some of your patterns have loops for hardware while others do not?

It is a personal preference (as of Sept. 2015, new patterns will not show the finishing loop info). Instead of a loop, I like to stitch on a closed jump ring.

Can I sell my beadwork made from your pattern?

You may sell your finished beadwork made from my pattern as long as
1. You purchased the pattern from my shop or received it as a free pattern that has been shared by me
2. It is made by your own hands (no mass production, wholesale, etc.)
3. Do not imply or claim my original design as your own.

I would appreciate credit for the use of my designs. Please link to my shop, www.BeadCrumbsHawaii.com, when you sell &/or publish your work (online/offline) On social media, please tag me on the following accounts.

No. You are not allowed reproduce the patterns; prepare “derivative” works based on my patterns; distribute copies of the patterns; teach/hold classes based on my patterns. No bulk or factory production allowed. My designs are original and copyright protected

You are not allowed to copy or recreate my design off of a photo or a finished piece that you have viewed or received. You must purchase my pattern.

What if I see a mistake on your pattern?

I hate it when I make a mistake but unfortunately and sadly, I'm not perfect. If you discover a pattern error, please send me a message via Etsy. I will send you a revised pattern, refund you, and issue a coupon code for a discount on your next pattern. Everyone else who has been affected by the incorrect pattern will receive the corrected pattern as well.
