The turtle got his shell with a bit of glitz. I was so pleased with this that I decided to do a complete beanie baby in silver sequins. I worked on it for several hours before deciding that the sequins were too big for the teenie beanie baby bear. I cut them all off and started over beading it with 11s. I really do not like beading the bears (they are soooo boring) but since I had started on this one I felt I had promised him a new life with beads so I had to do it. On my table is one of the new frogs from the 2009 set along with a baby duck. Both have no use for sequins but do go with the season.
