Materials:

4 yards ribbon, cord or plastic lacing
1 key ring or lanyard hook
136 black pony beads
8 orange pony beads
1 black pearl pony bead (for eye)
16 orange mini pony beads (for feet)
11 black mini pony beads
(for tail feathers)

 

Special Instructions: Just pay close attention to the string paths around the feet and tail feathers. After adding the beads for the tail, (5 rows), add 1 large and 3 mini beads. Make the one tail feather, then add 1 mini. Repeat this process twice. Continue weaving back through the beads of the tail. The feet are done by adding 4 mini black beads and going through the 3rd bead to form a toe. Add two more beads and repeat process twice. Go back through the first two black beads and through the two large beads on the body as shown. Make another foot on the other side. If desired, insert and glue the feather in between the 4 beads of the first row, on top of the head.
