It started by finding the blog, Mister Finch, a few months ago and then promptly forgetting about it.
Moths made and photo by Prairie Mouse . Are they not gorgeous? Love.
So, you know I had to put my own spin on them, right?
I like a bit of color. Also, butterflies. Pretty butterflies.
A little poke through my scrap boxes yielded a few sweet bits of fabric to make the wings. A dig through my shelves turned up red and white Divine Twine from my friend, Thimbleanna, for the antennae.
It was easy enough to sketch out the pattern for this butterfly but the fun part was sewing it together! I stuffed the body with wool fleece. I bought an entire fleece FOUR years ago and I am still stuffing everything from pincushions to toys to, well, butterfly bodies with it! It is the best stuff. (Ahahahaha- Pardon the pun.)
Thanks for the inspiration, girls! Oh, and Mister Finch. :)
