July 2009 Beaded Cat Charm Project.

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beaded tutorials and other project. This month's project is a beaded 3D kitten cat charm, made with Japanese glass seed beads using right angle weave Beading technique.

The pictorials are illustrated with spaces between beads for a clearer direction, in the actual beading, there should be no spaces.

Beaded Cat Charm :

What you need:

1)   Glass seed beads, size 11/0 (white, gold, brown, pink 
  
      and black) 12 white one size smaller beads - paws.
2)   Beading string (0.20mm) (some black nylon strings for
