Fabric origami butterflies

These super cute fabric butterflies are so versatile, they can be used as a hair slide for a little girls special occasion, such as a birthday, wedding or Christening, and they make a wonderful housewarming gift, or even just as a little treat for yourself, cause we all deserve one once in a while…

They are made from 100% cotton fabrics which are Oeko-tex Standard 100.

Beautiful fabric butterflies with their 3D nature makes them especially versatile and appealing.

They can be added to decorate a tote or pouch, be used as a brooch or to embellish a quilt and much more.

These fabric butterflies are available to purchase from my Etsy shop www.etsy.com/uk/shop/creativeblondegifts

Please get in touch if you have a particular colour you would like to match them to.

Wishing you a lovely weekend, until next time…

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:
