Work in Progress Wednesday

The guild challenge for November is blue.  I had fun with this one!  Years ago I saved some blue plastic bags that our newspaper came in.  I decided it was time to use them.  I layered a bunch together and ironed them so that they fused/melted together and then cut a six-inch square.  I adhered some blue fabric scraps to a base and cut out the butterfly shape.  I added a bit of glitter to the edge of the wings because you got to have a bit of sparkle!  I hand stitched the middle of the butterfly to the base.  I bent the wings so that they sit up from the base.  Love how dimensional it looks!
