Butterfly Pincushion

24 Aug 2012

Cindy Cloward here and I'm excited to share with you my pincushion. I  love all things summer...everything, the hot days, the flowers, vegetable gardens (fresh fruit and vegetables-yum!) and I love the butterflies.

 I have planted a few butterfly bushes in my yard to attract these beautiful insects (which they have also attracted hummingbirds too!) ...so butterflies were my inspirations for my pincushion.   When looking for a good fabric to create my butterfly, Bohemian Festival by Lila Tueller is the perfect choice....the leaves look like butterfly wings.
