Keychain with Sagittarius (Zodiac sign)

Brick stitch: Keychain with Sagittarius (Zodiac sign)

The current year comes to its end and also comes to an end our series of keychains with zodiac signs. Every month throughout 2013 we did one keychain with the zodiac sign of the month. Today is the turn of Sagittarius, it is the last keychain in the series.
We will need:
- size 8 seed beads of nine colors; I used the seed beads of white, green, light-blue, pink, brown, red, dark-blue, brown-green (Khaki) and grey colors,
- nylon line 0.25 mm thick (you can also use thiner nylon line) and two beading needles (as usual, you can do with one needle only).
For beading we will use the technique of brick stitch.
