This dolphin tapestry is a new challenge for me to make. First, it uses Peyote stitch instead of Brick stitch, which I use for all other tapestries. Second, instead of using the beadscape, this pattern came with only word chart, and a tiny photo of what it'll look like at the end. So, it was kind of having a blind date with beads, not knowing if I beaded right or wrong.
But, the dolphin turned out to be perfect, to me anyways.
This tapestry is the biggest one I've ever made so far. It's 7 x 4.3 inches (18 x 11 cm) and used 28 colors. Actually the pattern says that it uses 9,100 size 11 delica beads.
