Ok, so here's my first attempt:



I LOOOVE these spiders, but I'm not really satisfied with mine.  Is there a trick to getting the tension to hold the legs in place?

I love your spider!!
Looks ruby red on my screen!
I have done a few of them, and I twist those legs till they are very snug before I bead them.  I also curled the ends like you did.

I am not obsessed with Perty Thangs, I am disciplined...

I have alot to share, all you gotta do is ask.

 
Crochet, x-stitch, Ribbon embroidery, plastic canvas, beadwork, polymer clay, wire work, and now TATTING!!  Please help me learn to knit, then I might be complete.
