After the koala, please welcome the kangaroo in Miyuki beads! It was obvious that I had to make a kangaroo for my Australia-inspired series.
I finally received my brownish Miyuki beads so I could test this pattern created a few weeks ago. What do you think? The ears are a bit tricky to make but you just need to go forth and back with your thread and needle to strengthen them. I was afraid it would not look like a kangaroo, but at the end, it worked out quite ok. Special thanks to my friend Likeabobo for her support 🙂
Here is the pattern for personal use only. Feel free to show me yours on Instagram with the hashtag #motifelisapearls
Length: 3.5cm, width: 3cm. Start where the arrow is. Bead the upper part, then bead the bottom part (first the legs, then the tail, or the other way around).
