A Flutterby By Any Other Name..




Would flutter as sweetly?
This kit for this lovely is by Miyuki, and part of the Bead Stitch series #BFK-100, Lazuline Butterfly.
It was to be done in peyote, but I found it easier in brick stitch.
I also hated the body, which I think was to be done in RAW and made it look like a demented bumblebee...so I just used a nice SS headpin, added the bicones to it in butterfly body shape, then used Fireline 6# Smoke to attach the wings between bicones. I curled the end of the headpin to represent the butterfly's curled tongue.
Thank you Betsy, for letting me play with this...ball is in YOUR court, now!
