January 2006 Beaded Bear

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beaded project and other project. This month's project is a beaded teddy bear made with a 5-6 bead RAW beading technique.

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

Beaded Bear :

What you need:

1)    Beads, Pearls or Crystals any size. 3 black, 30 color of your choice for 
       the ribbon, many of one color for the body, all of same sizes. 
2)    Beading string - nylon or wire (25mm)

Step 1: Blue beads represents the body color, Black beads represents the nose and eyes, the red beads represents the bow on the bear's neck.

Head:String on six beads (the color you chose for the body) and cross both threads at the last added bead, make sure you balance out both end of the thread. This is where the head is behind the nose.

Step 2: Nose: Now add one more bead on each side of the thread, add one more black bead for the nose, crisscross both thread through this black bead.
Add one more bead on each side of the thread again and crisscross both thread back through the bead on top in step 1 photo.

Remember to pull tight!
You should have a 3D nose now.
Step 3: Head Continue: Face the nose away from you, take the left thread, add on 4 beads and cross the right thread through the last added bead.
Continue to string the left string out of the next adjoining bead.
Step 4: Now continue the momentum: use the left thread, add 3 beads, cross the right thread through the last added bead.
Continue to string the left string out of the nest adjoining bead.
Step 5: Now I'll go a bit faster: Repeat the step 4 process 3 more times.
The last beaded circle here: Add 2 beads on the left thread (remember to string the right thread back through two adjoining beads then pass it cross it through the last bead added on the left thread)
Step 6: String the right thread back through the adjoining bead.
Add 3 beads on the left thread and cross the right thread through the last added bead.

String the right thread back through two adjoining bead.
Add two beads on the left thread and cross the right thread through the last added bead - repeat this 3 more times.

Last bead circle here: String the right thread back through 3 adjoining beads. Add one bead and crisscross both thread through this new added bead.

The head is almost done - just need to add the eyes and ears so you can tie off and string the excess thread back through the piece in any order for a more secure piece.
Step 7: The Eyes: Cut a new short thread, pass it through the bead I highlighted in darker blue.
Add a new black bead on both threads, pass the strings through the bead on the top of the nose, add one more black bead through both threads and crisscross it through the bead that is directly opposite the one you started the string on.

Tie off and string the excess thread back through the piece in any order for a more secure piece.
Step 8: The Ears: Turn the bear face away from you. Cut a piece of short craft wire (25 gauge or 25 mm) start on one of the highlighted blue beads, add 5 beads on the left wire and pass it back through the same highlighted blue bead where you started.

Pass the left wire through the bottom three adjoining beads (from the 6 bead circle on the back of the bear's head) until it comes out from the next highlighted blue bead. Do the same with the right wire but pass it through the top 3 and exiting at the same highlighted blue bead, add 5 new beads on the right wire and tie off.

You can always hide the wire by looping them back into the head piece (no specific order) just for hiding the ends and more security.
Step 9: Body: Repeat step 1, step 3, step 4, step 5 of the beaded teddy bear project (make sure you skip step 2)!
