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.

When you've finished, it should look like this. Finally, clip the rest of the wire beside the body.
