Mariposa . . .
means Butterfly and seemes like the perfect name for one of my new creations!
This is one of the eight Butterflies, using a coordinating blue batik and blue batik print
Another Butterfly using a coordinating gold batiks
First, make the half square triangles for the two-tone wings
Cut them apart and press seams open
A neat stack of butterfly wings - almost ready.
Using this nifty pressing bar makes pressing super easy.
The wings are designed to be a bit over-sized and are easily cut down to the correct size.
Use a square ruler with a diagonal center line to make this even easier.
Ta Daaa - all cut and ready!
