I seem to be on a bit of a roll this week! I've been a little unwell this last fortnight (which has reduced any desire to go out into the heat!) so I have been restricted to indoor activities.
A little more experimentation later, I have created this pretty butterfly from Liberty fabrics and very thin flower-arranging-wire (if it has a posh name, I can't remember it!).
This is not as small as the miniature doll I made earlier this week. In fact it is approximately the size and shape of the Purple Emperor butterfly at rest (7cm or 2 3/4in across the wings).
The wings are made in the same way as the flowers in this post from last year. The whole process was VERY fiddly but I'm quite pleased with the result.
I hope you like it!
Have a great weekend!
