Mariposa - the inspiration for this mini felt sculpture, is butterfly in Spanish. It is also the home in which I grew up, in the rolling foothills approaching Yosemite Valley. Sadly, you don't see as many majestic Monarchs there as in the past, but it is still one of the most beautiful places I know come Spring and the blush of wildflowers.
Mariposa is made-to-order, and hand-crafted using 100% wool felt. Each piece will be hand-cut and stitched, 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).
Wing details are carefully stitched to the front and back of the wings, and the wings gracefully arch in a resting position. Below the body in the center is a 1 inch bar pin, securely stitched to a base layer of felt. Nearly life-sized, Mariposa is 3 inches across, and about 1.5 inches tall.
