A beaded elephant is something we have wanted to do for a long time and something that has been requested a lot, after all who doesn’t love an elephant!
We hope we have done it justice for you all. It has been fun and just a little time consuming to create so we are very proud we can now release them into the wild for you all to enjoy.
In this pattern you get Bluey … the well… blue Elephant. With his rather fetching hat and saddle. And the adjustments to create Rosey with her flower and bow.
The majority of the elephant is beaded in Round Peyote, with just a few little Odd Count Peyote pieces to add.
This bead pattern is made using Japanese Miyuki size 11 Delica beads. Round Peyote and Odd Count stitch is used but full detailed instructions are given, and no previous knowledge of the stitch is required. Please note the pattern may not work with any other size and type of beads.
There are 9-6 delica colours and the beadwork is approximately 4.5cm (h) x 7 cm (w) x 4 cm (d).
You will also need 2 x 3mm Fire polished Jet beads, 2 x 12mm Fire polished beads (or similar) and a small amount of polyester wadding for each elephant.
The bead pattern supplied is 51 pages and includes 126 step by step photo and graphic instructions. A word chart is also included.
