Butterfly Ornithoptera alexandrae small

Price$7.40

Queen Alexandra’s birdwing is the biggest butterfly in the world.
The wingspan of females is up to 27 cm.
Males (and we are to weave a male) are a bit smaller.
Ornithoptera alexandrae inhabits Australian forests.

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 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 4 graphs showing the weaving of the wings, of the body and joining the wings and the body.

This butterfly pattern is a part of the collection "36 butterflies and moths of the world".
