Little Butterfly

My grandmother loves purple and butterflies. And I am not very good about thinking up things to give people for their birthdays. Enter this little guy:

A quick, simple little needle-felted butterfly. I used a butterfly-shaped cookie cutter and some plain white wool to create a base, then covered it with a thin layer of the light purple. I tried to make the dots as symmetrical as I could, and also attempted to match them on the top and bottom of each side. Then I wrapped the center in the dark blue to create a body and attached two small strips at the top for antennae.

It made a nice little butterfly to put in the envelope along with her birthday card for a quick birthday present.
