Kallima inachus, the orange oakleaf or dead leaf, is found in from India to Japan.
Its wingspan is 80-100 mm.
When the wings are closed, it looks like a dry leaf with its dark veins and spots.
To weave this moth we’ll need fireline, a beading needle size 11-15 and 12 colours of beads (two toho palettes are given: a metal-lined beads palette and an opaque beads palette). The pattern includes a photo of two finished moths (the one made of metal-lined beads and the opaque one) and 2 graphs of weaving of the insect. The thread way is shown.
Such moth can be used as a pendant, or a brooch, a hairslide, an earring. The butterfly is quickly and easily woven. It'll take you about an hour or a bit more to be completed.
This moth pattern is a part the collection "18 Mini Butterflies and Moths of the World".
