Fabric Butterfly's


Butterfly Preserve made from this tutorial. I also posted this on the store blog:)


You could also make these butterfly's using you child's favorite clothing from when they were a baby.





I used Mod Podge instead of fabric stiffener (only because I didn't have the fabric stiffener).

I LOVE this! Even though I don't like "fake" butterflies ha ha ha. I was looking at it again today and was trying to justify a reason to make one for myself.

by the way, I LOVE that song that plays when you first get on your blog (from Amelie!) It's so fun!! :)

I like this sooo much more than the ones made with real bugs. Those freak me out a little. Of course you used my dream line to. Great idea as usual!

Margaret said...

OM Goodness!! I love this! What an awesome idea. Where did you get your butterfly patterns from? Your color choices are really great. You are an inspiration once again!

That's so cool that everyone likes them! I wish I could take credit for having come up with the idea...

Margaret: I got the butterfly templates from 2 places. a couple are from the Chatterbox font CD and the rest are from Googeling "butterfly template".

Sasha: I love that song too!

Corinnea: you could make one using a black frame and batiks so it's more grown up. Or atcually the fabrics the person used who did the tutorial were really nice. I can see them in a kitchen... or bathroom. So you have to make one now:)

I totally want to do this... and I dont think I need a reason... I am just doing it for me! I was just about to do some butterflies like this on a growth chart Im working on I was stealing the look from Pottery barn Kids... maybe this is who they copied off of!
