Special Instructions for the feet: Lace 8 black beads on one strand. This will be for the leg. Next, lace on 2 beads and go back through the first bead. Repeat this step twice then continue weaving back up to form the leg. Do the same for the other side and tie knots. Finish project by pulling a piece of maroon colored ribbon through the last row of black beads on the neck and tie the ribbon into a bow and securing it with glue.
