I wanted to make butterflies, and found this amazing tutorial by Ralph Matthews at origami-instructions.com, on his site he has a whole heaps on inspiration…

Take two different  pieces of 4.5″ x 6″ fabric, lay RST and sew all the way around 1/4″ from the edge. Leave a 2″ gap.  Turn right way out through the gap, and hand sew up the gap using a ladder stitch. Press, then begin at step 4 here:

Every memory quilt and personalised gift set is made with love and care, offering the highest quality products all safety tested for your peace of mind. I love to make special memory quilts, using your child’s baby grows, bibs and small t-shirts, to make a lovely keepsake for years to come, with special appliqued motifs from their clothes, hand finished with cotton binding and all beautifully wrapped to the highest standard. The newborn gift sets are bespoke, simply chose the items you wish to add to your box. They are beautiful gifts made using super soft velour with a choice of pretty jersey fabrics. All the fabrics I use are Oeko-tex Standard 100. (STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is one of the world’s best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. My Birch wood Bird ring is EN71 tested, meaning they have been chemically and physically tested and are confirmed suitable and safe to be used as a toy. www.instagram.com/michelle_creativeblonde and www.facebook.com/creativeblonde66
