Beaded Butterflies

These are 3 inches by 4. Some a just a tad bit smaller or larger. I do these on my spare time. One day they will end up in my quilts. I take a printed fabric with the butterflies, cutting them out leaving about a half an inch around them, iron interfacing in the back and than follow the color theme of the fabric, if I do not like it I add my own colored beads. They look so better in person. I have another one in progress now, but this one is a dragonfly. I collect all types of butterflies and dragonflies. Right now the best of my collection is from my friend that died and bought me home 5 stain glass butterflies from her trip to Pa. They hang on my glass window. I will take photos later one when the window in the back side it clean, lol
