Does anyone know any good sites or anything that has patterns for beaded creatures (using seed beads), or any good ideas for using seed beads? I have a zillion and i've already made a zillion bracelets and was looking for some creative ideas!

These are for pony beads, but i would guess they can be adapted for seed beads too?

If you go here it will show you the technique of the 3D animal. The less hearts or stars the easier the animal is to do.
In the graphs for the animals the beads are divided into sections with two rows. The top row of dots represents the top row of the animal. If you are ever unsure which row is which look for the eyes. The row with the eyes will be the top row.
I hope that made some sense.  Grin
I've been using 28g bead wire, when they say nylon wire I assume they mean tiger tail. I haven't done any in tiger tail yet.
