About the beaded bird:
I know they're very cute. Haha. This doll is a great start for those who want to try beading a crystal doll. It needs few crystal and is not difficult to make. The pattern is taken from Bead De Bead #8. I love Bead De Bead. They got many lovely designs and the patterns are very clear and easy to understand.
- If you're confused, just turn the doll as in the picture. You'll see where you have to put the thread.
- Follow the pattern. I highlight the crystals and paths of the thread.
- Making a doll requires putting the thread back into the same crystals, you should use small thread.
- Actually, the body of the doll is similar to a ball. That is to string crystals into many level of circles.
Step 1: Cut the nylon thread around 110 cm. String four crystals and join both ends at a crystal (red arrow).
Step 2: Pick up the right string and add three crystals. Join both strings at a crystal (red arrow).
Step 3: Put the left string inside the nearby crystal from the first ring (red arrow).
Step 4: The outside string adds two crystals. Join both strings at a black pearl (red arrow).
