Butterflies Ready To Send

All the butterflies are starched, and they look really nice and flat now. When I was pinning the first batch, one of my children was asking me if I was doing that because that's what collectors do with real butterflies. I found that amusing, but explained that I was only pinning them temporarily into shape while they dried after being immersed in the liquid starch.

The kids loved feeling how stiff they were after they were dry. The shapes of all of them were improved after the starching and pinning process.
With these pictures of them together, it's easier to see their sizes relative to one another. I'm happy with the variety of shapes, sizes and colors.
So now my butterfly project is finished with a dozen butterflies all ready to be sent to the Holocaust Museum Houston to be used in The Butterfly Project there.

Not sure I've ever seen crochet butterflies. These are nice! What will you make with them? Will you use in an applique?

Best, Kyra

Your butterflies are magnificent. In my other life as a glass Beadmaker I specialized in Butterfly Beads, and as a fiber artist, I have been thinking about doing some crochet butterflies. After seeing yours, I am inspired to start trying. I only hope I can do them as beautifully as you have.
