So usually with my sewing my daughter wants bigger, more pink, sparkles, or something else over the top. And of course mommy always reigns it in a bit. Yeah for Halloween! She wanted big, flappy, butterfly wings. She helped me pick out the fabric, we went with all Halloween prints and dubbed it the elusive Halloween butterfly. It is all sewn, no glue. Quilting fabric, with light interfacing for the cut outs, sewn onto felt. Then I took wire and used it for the piping on the edges. A bit of a cardboard backer in the "backpack" portion and I am a little amazed it all stands up as well as it does and "flaps" when she walks.

Video camera is ready to go for Halloween night.

I am actually most proud of the fact that the whole thing cost about $12. The fabric was of course on close out this close to Halloween (hence the elusive Halloween butterfly), felt was on sale for $2 a yard, and the wire is electrical wire I stole from the huge role we are installing all over our house. It is surprisingly sturdy stuff

Thanks for all the great comments. I just had to share here. As we all know from the other post going, there is not always the appreciation elsewhere for the work that goes into these things.

Now to finish a robot....... I do get a portion of the candy for this right?

Love your beautiful butterfly wings! Great construction job and fabric choices, and for only $12, too! Your daughter is very cute and very lucky to have a mom who sews.
