Whew... it's been a while. I completely overscheduled myself this summer, so not only have I not had any crafting time, but I haven't had any ideas for a while. It was a little worrisome, because I have all this crafting STUFF, and it's seems wasteful not to be able to use it.
School starts for my kids tomorrow but my classes don't start for another ten days, so I took the time to watch this week's Make it Monday. And finally got an idea:
I love batik- it's so beautiful without being overly patterned. All of these butterflies came from the same strip of fabric. I didn't have any spray adhesive to back my fabric, so I used Heat n Bond, die cut several butterflies, and ironed them together so there is some bulk there. I then ran them through my sewing machine chain style and it kind of looks like the sewing is antennae. They're kind of flat, so I embossed the background and added jewels to the front. I wish I could've figure out how to get the sentiment on the front. I stamped it inside, instead.
