A little less creepy...

How about some pretty butterflies?
I created this set including four butterflies, a moth, a net, and a cage. The net and cage aren't meant to be functional, just decorative. The net is made from fleece, wire, ribbon, and mesh. The cage is wire, mesh, and ribbon acting as a drawstring. It's just perfect for keeping track of those pesky butterflies.

The butterflies and moth were handsewn from fleece, I tried to make them realistic, or at least recognizable. They include:
Cabbage butterfly (white with black spots)
White admiral (black with white stripes)
Common wood nymph (brown with yellow and black spots)
Gray hairstreak (gray with tails and red spots)
Luna moth (green with white spots and body)

I'm thinking about making some more butterflies to list individually, as pins. They're quite fun.
