I'll post some of my other beading and crafts in another update, but I did want to post these ornaments that I made... I used my paw print pattern and made a bunch of paw prints in size 10/0s Delicas and then used various sizes of seed beads for the rest. I do not have a pattern for the ornament. I am not sure how to go about doing a pattern for that except for step by step photos and I don't have the time or patience for that. I originally shared a pic of each of them on Facebook and Instagram and thought I'd better get a Blog post out and document it.
first one I ended up sending out to my friend in California, just a
surprise, a little something to say hello and Merry Christmas! She's a
dog lover like myself and advocate of dog adoption. The second one is
slightly different because of course, while making one, I had some
thoughts of what I'd like to try next. I sent that one to my cousin, I
hadn't been able to get out there and see her in a very long time, it
was like sending her a hug via the U.S.P.S. And the third one was a
combination of the two. I have other ideas, but Christmas came too quick
and I ran out of time. Perhaps I will do some more in the future. the
pink seemed to get the most attention, although I love the color of the
black and white. Thankfully I didn't get any trash talk about the black
and white not being in the Christmas spirit.
Anyway, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
