Well, I stayed up late again, and finished this little bead-embroidered square. The square measures 1.5″ wide. I am donating this square to this year’s ‘Bead-it-Forward’ Breast Cancer Donation Project
. Many of these tiny squares will be sewn together to make a beaded quilt which will be auctioned off at this year’s Bead & Button Show
. The theme of this project is “Metamorphosed Like the Butterfly”, so all squares must reflect butterflies. You can view more squares HERE
In case you’re not sure what this is, it’s a caterpillar! I used size 15 Japanese seed beads for the caterpillar, and size 11 seed beads for the blue background. There is some texture to the piece, as the gold beads stick out a bit. Also, the antennas are tiny beaded fringes. I’m not sure this little guy turned out how I imagined, but I think he looks okay…
What do you think?
And, perhaps I should try to make a matching butterfly square?
