Beaded chain stitch insects


Apart from flowers, the beaded chain stitch method can be used to embroider insects’ bodies and wings.Here are a few examples:



A dragonfly



Butterfly



A bee?Well, almost!



This  spider’s my favourite.I can’t believe I’m saying this because I suffer from arachnophobia.My mother thinks that’s weird because she doesn’t know that millions of people worldwide suffer from this phobia.The body of this spider is embroidered with 2 different sizes of beads.Once, I had a spider brooch which was my favourite but who needs a brooch when you can embroider this easily!
