It’s finally Friday (hooray!) :D
What a week it has been! Our summer sale launched earlier in the week and we’ve been super busy ever since, so it’s nice to have finally found some time to sit with a cup of tea and share this simple and fun tutorial with you all.
This week, we made these lovely sewn-origami-butterflies – aren’t they the cutest things ever! These can be turned in to almost anything; hair accessories, baby mobiles, bunting, accessories and so many other things!
They don’t take a lot of fabric so are perfect for using up scraps or for those fat quarters that you’ve not got around to using – or they could be the perfect excuse to buy more! ;-)
You can make these from paper of card or paper too, simply follow the first instruction and then skip ahead to “The Folding Instructions” and remember you won’t need to use fabric, the iron or a sewing machine.

The Folding Instructions:
You can refer to both the written instructions and the images below to achieve this part.
To make our butterflies we used our lovely fully-licensed Disney Mickey Mouse material (usually £15.99 mtr, now only £14.39 mtr) and our beautiful 100% Cotton printed with red hearts (usually £13.99 mtr, now only £12.59 mtr). You could also use any of our fabulous Fat Quarter's at just £2.50 each!
We hope you enjoyed this little crafty tutorial as much as we did! We’d love to see any that you have made too, so feel free to send those to us via social media or our email address firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great weekend!
