Introduction: Sugar Skull Beaded Brick Stitch Pendant ¦ the Corner of Craft
These little guys are so cute! They're not actually too difficult to make, they're just HUGE so they can be quite time consuming... This was a two hour long video before I started editing it! Craziness...
Anyway! This is the first brick stitch pattern that I made all by myself. I thought it only fitting to finally share this with you (it was originally uploaded before Halloween, but I fail at updating Instructables...)
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?

Step 1: Brick Stitch Basics
In order to learn how to make these little guys, you will need to learn how to do brick stitch. It is a style of beadweaving in which the beads are sewn together to look like a brick wall!
To make this pendant, you are going to need to be familiar with how to start, finish, increase and decrease with brick stitch.
Step 2: The Tutorial Itself
Grab the popcorn and get yourself comfortable. This is going to be a long tutorial!
You are going to need:
Several colours of size 11 Miyuki Delica Beads
Size 10 beading needle
Nymo beading thread
4mm SP jump rings
Step 3: The Pattern
Here is the pattern for the pendant. Don't just use the colours that I have used. Go wild with your own colour combinations!!
