Maltese Dog, Peyote Stitch Bead Pattern

When I received the suggestion for a Maltese Dog pattern, I knew it would not be easy but I was up to the challenge. This toy dog, with its long, silky hair, absolutely needed to be a part of my bead collection!

It took me 11 revisions that I beaded 5 times (the rejects are sitting forlornly next to me) and late nights under my trusty OttLite lamp. I settled on two finalist and this is the one that won out.
