This tutorial shows how you can make this rainbow patterned bead mobile pouch. This is a beginner project ideal for kids and beginners.
You might want to check out those two tutorials first if you are new to beading. The two links given above will open in a new page and you can find detailed tutorials for both right angle weave and cubic right angle weave.
I did not follow any pattern. I simply scribbled this pattern on a piece of paper in 30 seconds and started weaving the beads.
You can create your own pattern or you can follow mine. I have close up pictures towards the end of this tutorial that will be helpful.
So let us get started.
Weaving the rainbow border.
Wrap this band around the cellphone completely to make sure you have the right length. This band can also be used to make head bands, bracelets etc.
Continue weaving the band.
Make 2 rainbow bands as shown below.
I then added the white beads. Again measure the height of the cell phone and make sure this is the correct size.
I made this flat sheet slightly smaller to demonstrate how to join the sides in a way that the pattern is preserved on all sides.
Fold the ends like shown above and then join the sides following the pattern right below. This will make sure that you don’t make any mistakes.
Now the flat sheet has been made into a tube. Next join the base. For this you can refer the tutorial here if you need.
I used white beads to join the base.
Handle is made using cubic right angle weave.
Colorful and pretty bead mobile pouch / cozy is ready.
