AND NOW THE MAKING!


This is one half of a pair of curtains I made for my daughter when she moved to her "big" room.  The Japanese Kuma Bear is sitting on a quilt made by my Mum for me when I was little, it is in need of desperate repair!




I drew a template of various sized butterflies and then 'bondawebbed' them onto the curtains.
I zigzagged stiched them on my machine to stop them falling off (or being picked off by little hands!) and also to add their antenae.

 

I limited the pallette to mostly greens and pinks, my fav colour combo.  I was very proud of my acheivement especially as I was 8 months pregnant at the time and crawling around on the floor to place the butterflies wasn't the easiest thing in the world!
