Butterfly top

Posted by Carina Thavelin

A little bit inspired by Halloween and all the costumes that you see everywhere I got the idea of embroidering a butterfly.

In this case butterfly wings to add to an existing top for a little bit of costume but still something wearable every day.

Embroidery collection 367 is filled with butterflies in all kinds of shapes and colors; free-standing, outlines that can be colored, small, large…


I chose the more graphic colors with black/white as a base but of course they can be embroidered in a more colorful way.

The picture to the left shows the original embroidery for the butterfly, with two free-standing wings and the body.

The base for the embroidered wings is organza fabric with Inspira water soluble stabilizer underneath, so it does not take so long to embroider. Put them in luke-warm water for just a few minutes to leave some stability in the wings and leave them to dry.

I added them along the sleeve seam on a short sleeved top with a zig-zag stitch and got an instant personal touch! Doesn´t Delicia look cute? She was very happy with the outfit!


Happy Halloween preparations!
