Free Butterfly Bead Pattern

Okay, this butterfly design made me smile because it is so silly looking. My children thought it was hilarious but it was not my intention for it to be that funny! I wanted my butterfly to match my caterpillar (I'll show you that later) so I thought I'd make similar features. I think my butterfly needs a little more refinement but instead of archiving this pattern until I can work on it again (which sometimes means never), I wanted to offer it as a freebie. Perhaps you'd like to change the bead colors and have some fun with it. Please show me your finished beadwork. My social links are below.

Free Red Rose Bead Pattern

Another free bead pattern for you. I made this one especially for Mother's Day but it would be great as a birthday gift too. Add it to earring hooks or to a simple chain to wear as a pendant.

Made on a peyote stitch chart but it can be stitched using the brick stitch method that I prefer for shaped beadwork.
