I started making these faux pearl spiders a very long time ago.
Spiders and their webs are very important symbols of luck in Crazy Quilting.
Their construction is simple and faux pearls come in a variety of sizes
and colors. Ideally, use the largest diameter for the abdomen and a slightly
smaller one for the head. There are always eight legs and you can use
the smallest diameter faux pearls or matching pearl finished seed beads.
Sometimes I glue the head and body together and allow it to dry on a
straight pin before I sew it onto the project.
Pick the spider you like the best, click on the picture and use the
