hand-sewn paper butterfly - part II

I recently made a lilac paper butterfly and used a pretty red silk thread to stitch the pattern on the wings.

This butterfly is the smaller 5-6" version.

The idea is the same: paper-piecing, silk thread and wire to create the body of the butterfly.

It is painstaking work to create such prettiness, but I so love the final effect that I had to make this double as a wall art piece.

A small wire loop was attached at the back to allow the butterfly to land on your favorite wall piece, picture frame, or a paper flower you happened to have hanging around... :)
