8" piece of 18 ga. craft wire.

4 wooden beads.

Instruction:

Trace pattern on to a small  piece of card stock. (pattern piece
should measure 2"x1 1/4".) Fold the  fabric in half, right sides
together, trace pattern directly onto fabric. Stitch around on the
line,  leaveing an opening for turning and stuffing. Cut out
leaving a 1/8" seam allowance and  clipping all curves. Make 5
In all.

Make a 1/4" loop in one end of wire. Push on a doll, a bead, and
another doll. Repeat until finished. Make  another 1/4" loop and
cut off excess wire. Cut a 20" or 24" piece of ratail, ribbon,
chain or leather cord. The chain can be applied to wire loops
and closed tightly. With the other cords,  push through loops and
glue, then wrap tightly with a small piece of wire.
