Llama ornament, materials used and link to YouTube channel

I am about to post a video showing this llama ornament I just finished. I am going to show all the materials here so anyone who is interested can see what I used. I will add a link to my YouTube channel here. I do not have the llama tutorial up yet, just a video showing him , some happy mail and some sequins I just recieved from Cartwrights sequins.

This link will take you to my channel and the top will be my newest videos and you can easily find the llama video once I get it uploaded tonight, and once I finish the tutorial it will be on the top of the page as well.

 

To get started I stamp my felt with the cookie cutter and then cut the pieces out. I cut two, a front and a back for each ornament I do.

 

I than gather all my materials. Sequins, felt for accents, seed beads, thread, and beading needles. I used some gorgeous bugle beads I was gifted  by https://Beebeecrafts.com  .

They were kind enough to let me try some products if I would be willing to do a few  videos on using them. I was able to pick what I wanted and picked out these beads, two nice sized  boxes, some gorgeous  magnetic clasps and a  12 pack of wire I will use in another video. They did not ask for a blog post but I was ,and am ,pretty impressed with the  items I received so I thought I would mention them in this blog post.

 

 

I chose my colors from the tassels I picked up at Hobby Lobby. So, only one bugle bead was not from Beebeecraft. I used a vintage pink I have had for probably close to 30 years.

 

I got it all together and started working on my ornament. I beaded all the accents first, the saddle, the bridal or reins, the hoofs out of the white bugles from that wonderful box. Then I filled in the white, beaded the edge together and put on the loop. All these instructions will be in my video tomorrow or Friday.

 

size D beading thread, colors I bought on Amazon, I believe it is called D lon. I will find out and correct if I am wrong. I put three tubes and they are around 40 bucks with shipping includd, you get 36 spools. Some duplicates but a lot of different colors .

I have bags of seed beads from three different online shops, all seed beads are TOHO brand. All are size 11/0

Lima Beads ( pink seed beads name is Ceylon cotton candy)

Aura crystals (yellow seed beads color name is Opaque dandelion luster  )

Aunties Beads (are  the big bulk bags  white is lustered white , green in lustered mint green, and orange is lustered pumpkin )

My sequins are all from

Cartwrights Sequins. I have been purchasing from them for well over ten years. I will be showing you my newest sequins in the first video.

the white sequins are a pure white with a luster finish to them, but older and I am  not sure where I got them, they could be 20 or more years old honestly. There are plenty of pretty whites you can buy

I do lightly stuff as I stitch it together with a cotton , usually from vitamin bottles, but you can use cotton balls as well. I will show t his in the tutorial .


forgot to put the beading thread in the picture !!

 

Thank you so much, I will be back with my next ornament or project soon !!! I will be posting for each video going forward, always before I post the video, so if you are reading this right away, which is Wednesday night June 26 around 7:30 pm, the video will not be up for a few hours. Have to upload and edit and then upload to YouTube, this can take a couple of hours !!!
