I was inspired by the beautiful insects embroidered on the dresses of Sensa Stark and the inhabitants of Quath in Game of Thrones. This dragonfly is made entirely of remnants of lace and felt. It is 4 inches long and entirely poseable. The repurposed wedding lace is very compatible with making poseable wings!





Here is my gift to fellow needlework and embroidery divas for Craftster's 10th Birthday!

Beautiful dragonfly. What a lovely idea to make him out of lace.

I can't understand the lack of comments on him, he's just gorgeous.
