Butterfly Bag

The above image is because people always ask what graphs look like in progress, how to manage all the bits or yarn etc. I have posted these before but figured another wouldn't hurt.

This is the finished product. It was for one of my kids most beloved teachers. They all had her for 2nd grade and we all loved her! She retired this year, which is a huge loss for future students as she was just one of those great teachers! So I wanted to make her something extra special. We all knew her love of butterflies, she even once flew to Florida with a butterfly that hatched late in her class and would not have made the trip to Mexico before the snow hit.

I wasn't even looking for a lining fabric for this bag but just happened across this embellished velvet on a clearance rack at Jo-Ann's. It's embellished with flying butterflies. I attached and sewed it in so that the bag is now completely reversible.

This was just a bit brighter image of the front. She sent us a thank you letter stating how much she loved the bag and how shes currently using it as her book bag for the library. I was happy to just do something special for a special woman.

Are those hair curlers? That is a super clever way to manage the yarn!
Love your work so far!
