The beaded crocodile is a great classic : timeless, lovely, beautiful...

It was the first creation I did when I was young. This crocodile may be done by adultes and kids.

It's a excellent way to learn 3D seed beads animals.

Supply list :

-  I always use fishing string. Make sure that your string is not too thick. 0,25 or 0,30 mm is perfect.

- seed beads of 2 differents colours

- 2 black seed beads

- keyring

- pairs of scissors

Just below, this is the pattern of the crocodile.

The green beads represent the underside of the animal and the yellow beads represent the top.


Cut  75 cm of thread. String one bead onto your thread. Make sure the bead is in the middle.

String two green beads.

Tighten the thread. And here is the result.

Follow step-by-step instructions. Remember to pull very tightly.

Now, how to make front legs?

String four green beads and a yellow bead (it will make the foot) on either side of your fishing line. 

Leave out the last bead (the foot) and loop back with the same string through the first four. Pull the string tightly. The leg has to be as close to the body as possible. 

Continue with the following steps. The pattern will help you.

Do the back legs.

Continue the remaining steps with the pattern. You have completed the 30 th rows. Start the 31st row.

Below there is a photo of the last step.

To finish, you have to do the crocodile's tail, which will make your crocodile perfect for a key chain.

After you do the last row of one bead, add seven or eight more beads on either side of the string. 

Loop the same string through the bead of the last row. Pull tightly and tie a knot. And your crocodile is done! 

And now you're an expert of making 3d bead crocodiles.  wink
