BUTTERFLIES

 I'm making Butterflies for no other reason than that I saw them on Pinterest and liked them.

They are fabric origami Butterflies and quite easy to make.

You can find lots of YouTube videos showing how to make them if you fancy.


I have started to decorate on a couple with glitter and beads and intend to do them all.
When finished I'm thinking of putting them around a willow wreath.


It's taking a long time to get these finished as I'm having to fit them in around everything else that's going on here, but I'll show more as I go along.

Hope you are all well.

  1. OH, they are GORGEOUS!!! And your choice of fabric for them is so beautiful. If you would ever sell any, let me know. Next, I can't wait to see them close up.

  2. They look lovely, Briony. Just checked on YouTube and you´re right, they don´t look too difficult to make.

  3. Oh, those are lovely. I might follow up your idea for a craft group I run in a retirement home.

  4. They're beautiful! I hope you're both holding out OK in the run-up to the holidays. I was down in Brighton a week ago and thought of looking you up but I was afraid you might have too much going on (and was afraid of inadvertently bringing a virus from our school into your midst)!

    1. We are holding up Steve, no more we can do. I read your posts when you were in Brighton and thought the same thing about you being so near and yet so far. lol
      How did you find Brighton?
      I never think there is much here but that's because having lived here all of my life I take it all for granted I guess.
      Pleased your results were ok, yoo hoo, free of worry for a bit. lol

    1. Things are difficult at the moment, Tom is unable to get out mow and blogging has been on the back burner, am trying to do more. Thanyou for your thoughts, Briony. X

  10. They are beautiful, I would never have thought of making fabric butterflies, I've made lots of crochet ones but these are much nicer. Have a great Sunday. x

  11. They're so pretty and I'm sure they'll look lovely mounted on a wreath. I think they'd look lovely hanging in a window too.

  14. Your versatile creativity always intrigues me. I'm not clever with small crafts that need glue and/or nimble fingers--I'm better with the sewing machine. Making something is a life-line--doesn't change the painful things going on, but does give us another focus.

  16. The butterflies are lovely. No point me looking up how to make them though as I haven't got a stash of beautiful fabrics! Or any fabric at all actually!
