Lotus Tea-Light Cover
THIS IS FOR BATTERY OPERATED TEA LIGHTS ONLY. DO NOT USE WITH NAKED FLAMES OR REAL TEA LIGHTS.
These cute little tea-light covers can be made with as few or as many colours as you wish. In this I am showing you three possible ways, but you can always invent your own, they are still assembled in exactly the same way. Each tea-light cover is made with six sections, which are joined as you go, or if you prefer, they can be joined at the end.
This tutorial assumes you know Peyote stitch, and the basics of beadweaving such as fastening off and attaching new threads.
