Sandy Cheeks, from " Spongebob"
3˝ yards ribbon, cord or plastic lacing
1 key ring or lanyard hook
59 white pony beads
24 clear pony beads
16 gray pony beads
7 bone or light brown pony beads
6 tan pony beads
1 coral pony bead
1 yellow pony bead
1 pink flower bead* (optional)
Black sharpie marker or craft paint pen for drawing on eyes and eyelashes.
Red and Blue sharpie marker or craft paint pen for drawing stripes on arms as shown. (Note: do both arms)
*I found a package of flower beads at Walmart. Since the package did not contain the right flower color needed, I painted a flower using bright pink craft paint.
Special Instructions: Pay close attention to the string path when making the arms and hands. To make the arms, string on 9 white beads. Go back through beads marked #6 & 7. Add on bead marked #10. Go back down through bead #7 and then through beads 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 to complete the arm and hand. Repeat the process for the other arm. When pattern is finished, glue flower on left side of ear and draw on eyes and stripes. (My daughter wasn’t happy with this pattern until I added the stripes!)
