Butterfly Pincushion

This is my latest creation, I had thought about if for quite sometime before I felt I could do it the way I wanted it to look. It came out pretty much as I anticipated. It was fun to make. The butterfly and the base are made from felted wool, and the flowers are handcrafted by me from ribbon. The darling little strawberry is from hand dyed velvet, with seed beads for the berries seeds.
This is a close up of the butterfly landing by the flowers. I made it's little feelers from stamens.
In this close up you can see how pretty the flowers are, I like the complementary color scheme of the lavender and yellow.

Just $22.50 plus $4.50 shipping
It would make such a wonderful gift for the sewer in your life, or just treat yourself. I think also it would be very attractive on a vanity table with lapel pin in it.
