Butterfly Weave.

It's a new challenge over at my
Butterfly challenge.

I would like to see yarn i.e. Wool or Embroidery Thread incorporated somewhere on your project along with a butterfly/s
Here is my inspiration for you.

I have used a pre coloured image by LOTV
from their Art Pad Set 19 ' Cute Cottage Garden'.
We used to make these cobweb/net designs
all the time as kids  from odds of wool
and an old kellogs cardboard box for the base.
I can remember making some quite intricate  ones.
I have just done a simple one here using
embroidery thread across one corner.
Sentiment is a gold sticker and I have 
mounted the finished piece on a pink card base.
