Eurema proterpia or the tailed orange, was first described
by Danish zoologist Johan Christian Fabricius in 1775.
This Pieridae butterfly inhabits woodlands, deserts and
subtropics of North and South America.
The wingspan is about 5 cm.
The pattern is suitable for brick stitch or peyote stitch.
I wove the butterfly using peyote stitch. And the thread way is shown for peyote stitch.
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 3 graphs showing the way of weaving the butterfly including how to fasten the thread.
