During our time at The Living Rainforest, we were lucky enough to see freshly hatched Blue Morpho butterflies; they were stunning, we enjoyed looking at the iridescent colours on their delicate wings as they flew gracefully past us.
The visit gave us inspiration when we were designing our own felt butterflies, we stitched carefully to fasten items such as sequins and buttons for decorative purposes. (Can you see the concentration on our faces!)
Following that, we chose either running stitch or blanket stitch (which was a greater challenge), to stitch the butterfly pieces together.
Don’t they look beautiful!
