What happen on my non-beading days ?? No needle ... but with Swarovksi crystal, mono-filament thread and a book with Japanese instructions. Thanks to Yumiko Maki's designs, the above motifs are easy to made! I love the Japanese diagrams (I don't read the instructions).
I was trying to make a tiger but seems like the result is terrible, a dog with tiger skin ... =D I still love it, so cute !
