Note: You don’t begin with a lanyard hook. It is added where indicated by the Lace the hook on just as you would a bead. Also, follow the string path carefully around the wings.



Special Instructions for the feet: Lace 16 red 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.
