Butterfly Fantasy

from The Bead Doodler

Butterfly Fantasy

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • you will need to be familiar with peyote stitch

The green sample is made with a background of delica beads and size 11 and size 8 czech seed beads. the blue sample is made with a background of size 15 with the butterflies made with size 11 and size 8 seed beads.

I don't recommend this project for beginners, as keeping the thread taut enough to sculpture it takes some practice. Otherwise it is simply peyote stitch.
