I have a crap ton of size 11 and 6 seed beads and I'd like to make some bracelets or maybe necklaces with them. A lot of the patterns and tutorials I've found incorporate other beads, but I would like to use only the seed beads. Any patterns or tutorials?

Yes, with seed beads in size 6 and 11, you can make a few netted/stitched patterns such as these:

There are a number of projects here using seed beads.  I recommend the St. Petersburg bracelet - I made a lariat from that weave a number of years ago using 11/0 seed beadsand 8/0 beads.  You need to register to get the patterns, but it is worth while, and free:
http://www.beadandbutton.com/bnb/Default.aspx?c=ss&id=143

Here is another site with lots of projects too - needs registration, but again, free.  I linked to a square stitch bracelet that could translate to a cute choker too.

http://beadingdaily.com/media/p/17182.aspx

Here is one of my favourite on-line beading magazines - free, and go to the archives, lots of projects there.  For you, I am thinking specifically the stitching and weaving sections.  It doesn't look so pretty in their examples, but the spiral stitch is easy and with combining the size 11/0 and 6/0 beads, you can come up with something simple, but quite attractive with that stitch.
