The Madagascar diadem, Hypolimnas dexithea, is a butterfly endemic to Madagascar.
Its wingspan is 9-11 cm.
The wings in this pattern are suitable for brick stitch or peyote stitch.
I wove them using peyote stitch. And the thread way is shown for peyote stitch.
The body is woven using a sort of tubular RAW.
You’ll need some fishing line with diameter 0,15 mm, a beading needle size 11-15 and 11 colours of seed beads size 11 or size 10.
2 toho beads palettes are offered: for opaque beads and for metal-lined ones.
The pattern includes a photo of the finished butterfly and 4 graphs showing the weaving of the wings, of the body and joining the wings and the body.
