Dragonflies are another CQ favourite...And one of my all time favourites too...
The first picture are of two beaded dragonflies that I made some time ago...I could not find the pattern to post here today... Aren't they lovely!.
Here is an easy way to do a dragonfly, and looks great!
First I attatch three faux rice beads for the body, then trail off with a few smaller pearl seed beads for the tail..About six beads.
Then I added two tiny beads for the eyes.
For the wings...I just used #8 DMC crochet cotton and worked in detached chain stitch..Couching down in three places to hold down in place.
I added two smaller detached chain stitches inside the two bigger wings for a bit of dimension
