Sugar Skull Beaded Brick Stitch Pendant ¦ the Corner of Craft

About: I like to make and bake things! I upload a new video every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday on my YouTube channel. My favourite mediums are crochet, beadweaving and macramé. I do also love tea and cupcakes, alth...

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...)

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!!
