I made these for the butterfly swap:

I used a modified square stitch, and made the pattern myself from a butterfly book I checked out of the library. The earrings are red admiral butterflies, and there's a red admiral butterfly in the bracelet as well.

I hope it holds up. The last bracelet I made with nymo thread broke (different style bracelet), so I used two layers of nymo, and this stitch has at least two passes through all the stitches, so I'm hoping for better results than last time.

I realize now that I should have made the bracelet with white instead of black nymo, but I was originally going to make it with a dark green background, and the butterflies didn't  stand out at all, so I just kept using the same color nymo without even thinking about it when I changed the background color.  Sad

Comments welcome!


Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!

Thanks!  I put a lot of time into it between the beading and the pattern design. I'm glad someone else likes it, too!
