Moar butterfly.

The silver-studded blue. Tiny, iridescent and much too lovely to ever accurately replicate. Looks cracking on that pink coat; I’ve made one for Etsy but I think now I need one to wear myself.

Originally I tried…is it turkey…something? That pile-textured embroidery. Whatever it’s called, I don’t know the ins-and-outs of embroidery names. Anyway, I tried fluffy embroidery for the body, which was cool but too much for such a small butterfly. I think I’ll use that for a bigger project.
