Smooch, the Bear

designed by Evelyn McDermand



2   yards ribbon, cord or plastic lacing
1 key ring or lanyard hook
83 white pony beads
 2 black pony beads
Red sharpie marker
RoseArt lip stamp marker
Reinforcement stickers
Craft glue
Scrap of red inch ribbon for bow

Special Instructions:  Begin with the first bead of the head.  Then make the ears and continue with the pattern. 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.  I used a red sharpie marker to draw on the heart for the nose.  Next, I used a lip stamp marker and stamped the inside circles from a package of self sticking reinforcements.  Randomly glue the lip stickers onto the completed beadie.
