Fuchsia Flower Pattern
This fuchsia has been very popular as part of a bookmark kit and is now available as a pattern in its own right. Made using shaped peyote stitch the finished flower measures approximately 3.5cm wide and 7cm long. The main flower is made using size 11 seed beadsm with a few size 8s for the stem. I used size 15s and drop beads for the stamens. Full step-by-step instructions are provided with diagrams.
If you are new to peyote stitch I recommend doing a little practice piece using the introductory guide provided on a separate page.
