Beadies for Easter

It's almost Easter. What a wonderful time of year.
If you're looking for a fun craft for the kids to do over Easter weekend, here are some ideas:

 I have several patterns for "bunnies" on my beadiecritters website. Here is one of them.

One of my website visitors made bunnies from this pattern in several different colors. So cute!

An Easter basket pattern, complete with chocolate bunny!

A whole set of Easter items, including 3 eggs, a bunny, and a basket.

This chick pattern comes from

This lamb pattern is so cute! Also from Making Friends.

If you are entertaining younger children who may not be able to do these crafts, put out a bowl of pastel-colored pony beads and let them string them on plastic lacing. (Not recommended for children under 3 unless closely supervised.)

I've Been Designing

I have been busy designing new beadies today.

I had a request for "Walking Dead" beadies.

And I'd been itching to do some of the Frozen characters.

Patterns for these are coming very soon! I might just keep on designing, while I'm on a roll.

New Video! How to Make a Beadie Gecko

Today I made a video tutorial for making a beadie gecko. This is a great project for beginners, and I hope that a video will help explain the process if anyone is struggling. I'm hoping to make more videos, showing other techniques.
