Little Bill

designed by Evelyn McDermand

Materials:

2  yards ribbon, cord or plastic lacing
1 key ring or lanyard hook
26 rust or medium brown pony beads
24 royal blue pony beads
16 yellow pony beads
8 white pony beads
6 red pony beads
6 aqua or teal pony beads
4 black pony beads
Brown & black sharpie markers or craft paint pen for drawing on eyes.
Red sharpie marker or craft paint pen for drawing the letter”B” on shirt, (optional).

Special Instructions:  When making the row with the nose and ears, add 1 bead onto one strand and 6 beads onto the other.  With the first stand, go through 2 beads, skip the middle bead in order to make the nose on the face stand out, and then through two more beads.  Notice that you do not go back through the beads that make up the ears. For help with the feet, see the otter pattern.  You may use a red sharpie marker or craft paint pen for drawing on the letter “B” or print, cut out and glue the one that I have provided.
