Dear friends, I have created a new doggie – a beaded Rainbow Poodle pin pendant! Here is a peek at how it was created:
I have layered several felt shapes and stitched them together. Then, I stitched on a tiny glass nose. For the dog’s hair, I beaded short 2-bead stacks on its head and tail.
The dog’s body is made up of short 3-bead lazy-stitches which are very close together. This gives the piece the desired texture. I had wanted to make a rainbow poodle for awhile. I hope it makes you smile:) Please click the pic to view this item on Etsy..

Just a quick post today to announce a new item in my Etsy shop – a purple beaded Dalmatian pin!
This piece was created by stitching tiny glass seed beads to felt (2-3 beads at a time) using a strong nylon thread. Beads are layered to make her legs & face look dimensional, and her ear actually moves! Several different shades of purple & white seed beads were used, as well as a tiny glass eye for her nose. It measures 2.25″ wide x 1.5″ tall (5.5cm x 3.5cm). This pin can also be created in black & white or brown & white. Please click the pic for more details. What kind of dog should I bead next? 🙂
Today, I’d like to show you a quick pic of my latest custom order, a little beaded dog pin named Fluffy:)
A friend of mine sent me a few pics of Fluffy. Not knowing the breed, I worked from photos only. I came up with a sketch, cut out some felt and started beading. I used several different white, cream, and brown size 15 glass seed beads. The first layer of beadwork (above) is rather sparse, but the second layer more than makes up for it (below). I also added some beaded loops and fringe on the dog’s ears to add dimension. Complete, this piece measures approx. 3cm x 4.5cm.
How do you think Fluffy looks, and more importantly, what kind of dog do you think she is? 😀
