Beading Instructions

These are instructions for working with the patterns for creating Beaded Snakes, Lizards and other Critters.

Most of the beads in the pattern are laid out in horizontal rows. The horizontal rows all connect in relatively the same manner. To reduce clutter in the patterns, no indications were made for how to connect them. Other beads extend off to the sides of the main pattern and do not follow the basic horizontal row pattern. Where they get attached to each other is indicated with little tape marks.

There are three basic techniques used in creating your bead critter: Starting, Working a horizontal row, and Attaching legs:

I created all the images for these patterns and instruction using Correl Draw Version 4. Pretty cool, huh?
