In my first felting class a few weeks ago, we all hand-felted a swatch just for practice. Mine came out with a vaguely hourglass shape and I thought, with a little trimming, it would make a butterfly. I promptly trimmed it, and plan to decorate it after I take a needle felting class this weekend. Pics to follow soon!
Surfing on Ravelry, looking at butterfly patterns for inspiration, I came across The Butterfly Project, something the Holocaust Museum in Houston is doing in memory of the children who died during the Holocaust. So I crocheted this one to send to them; it's a free pattern on Ravelry.
You can check out the museum website here or take a look at the Ravelry Butterfly Project group. Just spreading the word.
