Beaded Bag

This beaded amulet bag was a birthday present for my supervisor. She loves to play the piano in her spare time and is teaching her granddaughter. It was definitely a learning experience for me. I learned to bead a bag in the round with two different sides in tubular peyote stitch and I learned to make a spiral chain. I am rather pleased with the end result and so is she. I used # 11 Delica beads for the bag and white # 11 seed beads and black # 13 Charlottes for the strap. I thought the red dagger beads finished the fringe off nicely.
PS: I revised my last post regarding the butterfly pattern.
