New Beaded Miniature Schnauzer Pin

Dear friends, check out my latest custom order – a beaded Miniature Schnauzer pin pendant. This piece was inspired by photos of my customer’s dog named Savy.

First, I cut out some felt shapes and stitched them to a piece of stiff beading foundation. Then, I stitched on eyes and a nose. These are special glass doll eyes which are attached to a wire. The eyes measure 1-mm, and the nose is 2-mm. Yes, I could also use a drop bead for the nose and seed beads for the eyes, but I really like the glass doll eyes because they are more round.

Next, I began stitching tiny Japanese size 15 seed beads to create the dog’s face. The face is always a challenge because it convey’s the dog’s personality. It is also a very small piece of felt – just 3/4″ tall x 1/2″ wide!

Once, I complete the face, the rest of the dog’s body seems easy to bead.. Until I add a second layer of beaded fringe..

To learn how to do layered beaded fringe, check out my Yorkshire Terrier beading pattern on Etsy.. It takes precise stitching, and a LOT of patience, but I think the results are worth it.. What do you think? :)
