Create a butterfly or any other shape from scraps and a piece of felt. This is a fun and quick project.
What you’ll need
Fabric and/or yarn scraps
Piece of felt
And what you’ll do
Start with a piece of felt cut to the size you want your finished project to be. Fold the felt in half and pin the layers together. Free form cut the outline of a butterfly using scissors,
like this simple butterfly shape.
Add pieces of fabric and/or pieces of yarn on top. Make it as symmetric as you like.
Layer a piece of tulle on top (I have used a silvery grey tulle here) and pin it down through all layers.
Stitch around the edges and the body of the butterfly and free motion quilt the wings. I have used a black thread to add texture.
Cut away excess tulle and embellish it with beads or buttons if you like.
Add a paper clip, yarn or ribbon for hanging and your butterfly is ready to test its wings.
