Bead a beautiful parrot with easy increases and decreases in tubular peyote.
Make one to sit on your desk or computer. They can also be worn as earrings or pendants.
You will probably need to have some tubular peyote stitch experience. Knowledge of sculptural peyote would be helpful too, but is not essential, as the instructions are illustrated, step by step and very clear. You also need to know how to do flat brick stitch, as full instructions for this are not included.
Delica colours are not specified. Any bright red, bright yellow or bright blue delicas will work. You can also make this parrot with size 11 seed beads instead of cylinder beads.
It would be quite easy to change the colours and the length of the tail to make a different kind of parrot.
