Blue Morpho Butterfly Hair Clip or Pin

Spring means renewal - what is more representative of renewing life than butterflies? Colorful and the embodiment of beauty, butterflies are a great inspiration for me. Trying to capture their unique wings in wool is an exciting challenge. The newest in my felt butterfly repertoire: The Blue Morpho.

Blue Morpho is made-to-order, and hand-crafted using 100% wool felt. Each piece will be hand-cut and needle felted, making this butterfly as unique and without duplicate as it's fluttering inspiration. (Photo is an example only, your butterfly wing pattern will be similar, but unique to your pin). Backing this wearable art-work is a 1 inch bar pin or hair clip, securely stitched to the third layer of felt. In life, Blue Morpho butterflies are 5-8 inches in width, this representation is nearly 3 inches across, and about 2.5 inches tall.
