Graphium Weiskei or Purple Spotted Swallowtail inhabits only mountain regions of Papua New Guinea. It lives at the height 1400-2400 meters above sea level and spends most of its time high in the forest canopy. The wingspan is 7-8 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 16 colours of seed beads size 11.

The pattern includes a photo of the finished moth and 4 graphs showing the weaving of the wings, of the body and joining the wings to the body.
