Pony beads can be used for a lot of fun projects. Making a purse out of them is time-consuming but not particularly difficult. This is a project that anyone can do, and the resulting purse will be quite the conversation piece when you take it out in public. Select the colors of the beads you want to use and figure out the pattern you wish to arrange them in. Simply draw the pattern on a sheet of lined paper.

Choose a wire that is either gold or silver in color, as colored wire will likely flake off when woven. Loop the wire around the first bead and lock it into place around that bead.
