Princess, the Bear

designed by Evelyn McDermand




2   yards ribbon, cord or plastic lacing
1 key ring or lanyard hook
82 purple or neon purple pony beads
3 black pony beads
1 white ribbon rose flower
Scrap of inch purple ribbon (for bow)
Note:  You can find the tiny ribbon rose flowers at craft stores such as, Hobby Lobby, JoAnn’s, Walmart and Michaels.  They have wrapped wire stems and come in a bunch of 12.

Special Instructions:  Begin with the first bead of the head.  Then make the ears and continue with the pattern.  After completing the pattern, add the rose by going in between the two purple beads so that the rose rests on top of the beads.  See pattern for placement of the rose.  Twist the stem around the cord a couple of times.  Once rose is in place, twist the stem around the rose to secure it.  You may cut the stem to desired length or wrap the stem around a pencil to curl it.  Take the scrap piece of ribbon and weave it through the last bead of the row consisting of 4 beads (under the nose).  Tie a bow and add a drop of glue to the knot to secure.
