awww he is so cute !

far to complicated for me i'm afraid, I just don't have the patience for seedbeading but admire anybody who does

It is not really for beginners but if you know Right Angle Weave, start with easier projects like the beaded crystal ball: http://www.beadjewelrymaking.com/Kid_Art_Project/Kid_art_bead_project/april2005_bead_project.html followed by anyone of the beaded 3-D hearts and if you breeze through then this project is no problem.

Cheers!

That's beautiful Laura! glad you got to use the tutorial and hope more will see this and bead the penguin too!

The penguin I made is one inch tall but you can always make it smaller or bigger with the different sizes of beads.

Cheers!

Hi Rosemary,
Thank you. I used size 8/0 seed beads and my penguin ended up slightly bigger at 4cm tall.

Thanks, and thank you for posting the tutorial. The patterns on your site are great. Are they your own designs?

Yes sort of, my penguin evolved from my beaded ball then into my beaded 3-D snowman then into this penguin.

Cheers!
