Mailbox, from “Blue’s Clues”

designed by Evelyn McDermand



                2 ˝ yards ribbon, cord or plastic lacing
                1 lanyard hook
                42 lilac or purple pony beads
                15 neon pink pony beads
                14 brown pony beads
                12 lavender pony beads
                2 white pony beads
                1 gray or pearl black pony bead
                Black sharpie marker or craft paint for eyes


                Special Instructions: This pattern does not begin with a lanyard hook.  It can be clipped onto the top after the pattern is completed.  The pattern starts
                at the bottom by stringing on 4 brown beads. They should be in the middle of the cord or ribbon. With one end of the cord, go back through beads  #4&3
                (see diagram 1). Follow the string path carefully.  After completing the last row of brown  beads, weave 3 purple beads in the usual manner. Follow the
                pattern and add on the remaining beads to finish the bottom row of the mailbox. When you get to the blue star, lace on 10 neon pink beads. To form the
                3-D flag, you will weave back through beads 7&8, then 5&6 and back down through 5,4,3,2 1, and the starting pink bead. Refer to the blue string path
                in diagram 2. Continue as usual until you get to the black star at the end of the pattern then refer to diagram 2 (the black string path) for attaching the
                top of the flag. This pattern also needs reinforcing to keep the top two and  bottom two rows from separating.  You can use the method used in the
                Leprechaun Hat pattern or the method explained in the instructions for the Gingerbread Man or Buzz Lightyear on Margo’s site.
