Beginner's Bracelet.

I needed an easy project for a workshop I am doing for some friends who have never beaded, but they sew.  I find people who sew pick up beading fairly easily, probably because they can manage a needle!   I decided to use size 8 beads for a simple 8 stitch peyote band, then add a motif.  I used a combination of matte and AB beads in the same colour, and it worker quite well.  After trying a couple patterns for a motif and deciding they were too hard for beginners, I developed a motif on my own, and made my first original pattern in Word. Now I'm trying to figure out if I can attach as word or Pdf document to this blog. As soon as I can figure that out I'll post the pattern.
Guess what, I think I figured it out with the help of the internet.
The pattern should be here.
