step-by-step beading instructions below explain how to make this
|If you know how to make this butterfly, go forth using the pattern.||String one seed bead on the center of the wire.||Loop back with either wire through the bead and pull tightly.|
|String three beads on one side of the wire, and loop back with the other wire through the beads as before.||Pull it tightly and do the same again. Now, you should have 3 rows finished. Next you'll make the two wings.||String ten seed beads on one side of the wire. Loop back with the same wire through the first (nearest to the body).|
|Hold the first bead near to the body and pull it tightly.||Now, do exactly the same on the other side of the wire.|
|After you've finished the wings, it should look like that.||Using the Back and Forth technique (the same as you made the first 3 rows) make a row with 3 beads.||Make two more wings as before, except that now use 12 beads instead of 10.|
|Using the Back and Forth technique string one last row with 3 beads. (Use different colors for the eyes.)||Feeler: String one bead on one wire, loop back through the whole last row leaving a little wire for the feeler as shown.||Simply twist the feeler to look like on the picture above. Do exactly the same on the other side.|
you've finished, it should look like this. Finally, clip the rest of
the wire beside the body.
