Roo, the Australian kangaroo

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
