Beaded Pig Pattern by Allegra

Welcome to the 3-D beaded pig pattern instructions! If you have any difficulty following this tutorial, please post a comment at the bottom of the page on which you are stuck, and we'll do our best to help!


Step 101

Step 101:Turn your pig a little more so you can see more of its belly. String the same red thread through the beads shown, marked 5, 6, 7, and 8. After you've done that, add three new beads to the pattern. Beads 9-11. Bead 10 is another pig foot. String your red thread into bead 8, the opposite way that you did before.

Step 102

Step 102:Follow the red thread along the path to the opposite side of the pig's underbelly to where the third leg should be strung, and attach it the same way as the first two legs.

Step 103

Step 103:You've now got four pig feet! Your almost done! Now for the tail...

Step 104

Step 104:Get your red and black threads to your pigs bottom. It doesn't matter how you get it there, you just need them facing the opposite way, so they cross as they do in the picture.

Step 105

Step 105:On one side of your thread, add 3 new beads.

Great tutorial! I think even though you didn't mention how to do the 4th foot its self explanatory. I used 8' seed beads so cute took about 2hrs.
Thank you.
