Day Lily Pattern


Learn how to stitch these colorful lilies using only basic peyote stitch! This project takes about 3-4 hours to complete. You'll need several colors of size 15o and 11o seed beads and size 11o cylinder beads, plus a beading needle and thread. I recommend using nylon thread to give the flower petals some softness.
