I've made a felt butterfly for the Butterfly Project http://www.hmh.org/minisite/butterfly/index.html After finding I was over £100 in credit, Yippee!! ,when I changed my energy supplier I decided to treat myself to an embellisher/needle punch machine. For those not familiar with these machines, they don't use thread - something for all you non-stitchers maybe ;) - they have several felting needles which are barbed, which mesh fabrics together. For the butterfly I used a piece of white felt for the base then felted wool and yarns on top. I did the embellishing before cutting the butterfly out. I can't decide whether to put anything else onto it - buttons, sequins, flowers?
