August wooly butterfly

It is still August…

It took two tries to stitch a butterfly that I liked 🙁

I was not happy with my first attempt. No, I’m not going to show you … it was very wobbly and I wasn’t happy with the colors I had chosen. I asked Julia to make my design symmetrical (she’s clever like that) and then I tried again.

I’m much happier now!Lots of bullion stitches!

Too much fun?
Let’s look closer at that body…Milled wool fabric from Sue Spargo, appliquéd  with Ellana wool/acrylic thread and embellished with Eleganza perle cotton. Find the cutting and placement diagrams under a year of butterflies  at the top of the page.

Happy stitching!
