We are pretty proud of these patterns, as lots of them were created here at Bead Shack by either my talented daughters, or a few of our customers. Felicity the Flatback Turtle, for example, was designed by a boy called Tom who was 14 at the time, and right or wrong wanted to make a turtle in the class, so he designed his own! The photo for the turtle shows a miniature made from 6/0 seed beads as well as the large size.
A fabulous pastime for the kids during the holidays, or you might want to try your hand at making these animals from size 6/0 seed beads and fine wire (you can even use fuse wire - just don't bend it too many times in the one spot or it will break). These miniatures of the animals are great for keyrings, gift tags, or just little decorations. So much fun, and if you use the seed beads you already have, very cheap to make!

Bead Shack has a great reputation for comprehensive and easy-to-follow tutorials. Children, of course, may need help in reading instructions, no matter what their age! Suitable for kids 6 years and up, with help on the instructions according to their ability.
Animals are constructed by passing cord in opposite directions through a row of beads to make the pattern, with the addition here and there of a wing, an arm or a tail!
Beads needed are either 6mm or 9mm pony beads, thread needed is any thin cord that will pass at least twice through the beads. Once the kids get really clever they can try their hand at making the same patterns using seed beads with fine crafting wire!
Please note, you will receive a downloadable PDF file to your email once you have completed checkout. The beads and cords in the photos are suggestions only, and are not part of this E-Book product listing. The file will be sent to you within 24 hours of your purchase as we will need to do this manually.
