{what am i?}

I am a hand beaded Gray Tabby Cat on a handy Shephard's Hook Bookmark. I am carefully bead woven with tiny size 11 Japanese seed beads. I would be great for anyone who likes cats and books.

{measurement}

I measure approximately 3 cm. at my widest point and am 3.5 cm. tall.
I am attached to an 8.6 cm. silver plated shephard's hook bookmark.
My bead count is about 235!
My primary bead colors are gray, black and white.
This bookmark works well with books that do not have a thick spine.

No. Instructions are not included. Experience with bead weaving is recommended.
Yes. You will need to know basic bead weaving stitches such as ladder stitch, peyote stitch and brick stitch. You will also need to know how to add thread (if your existing thread is too short), how to end your beadwork and how to add attachments or connector beads if making jewelry.
Yes. Please note that some of the patterns will be challenging for new beaders. I will try my best to help you along by providing you with tips and video links. There are also a lot of great bead weaving tutorials on YouTube. I suggest that you try a free pattern first before making a purchase. Search "free patterns" at www.HandmadeCuties.blogspot.com. Please don't get discouraged. Practice makes beading even more fun!
Definitely not! Use either Peyote or Brick Stitch to weave your design. Many of my patterns are created on a Peyote Stitch chart because it's my personal preference. However, when actually beading my piece, I turn my pattern sideways and stitch using the brick stitch technique.
You can start anywhere you want to. Some people have told me that they like to start from the center moving outwards while others like to start at the edge. I usually start at the widest/tallest point or on the row/column that I plan to attach a connector bead (so I can get that out of the way first).
It is a personal preference (as of Sept. 2015, new patterns will not show the finishing loop info). Another option, instead of loops or connector beads, is a wire connector. One thing I don't like to do is add a jump ring directly through a bead. The twisting and turning of the jump ring weakens & may crack the bead...and that would definitely ruin your hard work!
Please contact me. I am always open to pattern suggestions but may not be able to accept custom pattern requests due to my schedule. I do not make patterns of copyright / trademarked images and characters.
No. Patterns are copyrighted. Please do not reproduce the patterns; prepare “derivative” works based on my patterns; distribute copies of the patterns; teach/hold classes based on my patterns. Thank you for your understanding. However, you can sell your completed beadwork. Credit to BeadCrumbs would be appreciated.
I go over each pattern before I list it for sale; however, if you notice an error, I will be very grateful if you notify me ASAP. I will gladly refund you for the pattern price, issue you the corrected pattern at no cost and compensate you with a freebie for catching my mistake.
