I have been non-crafty lately with some health issues ailing me. However, last night this "little" guy paid me a visit.

When he took flight, it looked like a parakeet flying around the house. It was BEAUTIFUL. Even my kids were in awe of a moth so beautiful. I safely placed him outside where he could fly away (or continue to ram himself into my porch light).

This morning I finished my three bags I have been working on from the "Miranda" pattern. They look crooked in the pics, but they really aren't. I guess I have a lot to learn about photo shooting.

#1 for a co-worker

#2 for my MIL...no pic, but trust me it was cute. A Dachsund pattern in blue red and brown.

#3 for a co-worker. It reminded me so much of a flower basket that I had to make a flower pin for the front. It is made from two felted wool sweaters in the "bottle cap" style.

close-up of flower and the pin sewn on the back. Man my pics are blurry!

It is my first felt project. My first use of embroidery floss. And my first time seeing a moth the size of a small bird!

The flower bas is bottle cap with fiberfill and felted wool. The "rose" is made of a cream colored mohair/wool felted sweater. I mad a bud for the center and filled around with petals.

C&C appreciated. Thanks

We just "hatched" a Luna Moth like that a couple months ago. My son found the cocoon last year, they are so cool!

And I completely adore bag #1 !!

your bags are gorgeous, but i had to also comment on the luna moth... the very first time i saw one i was at a friends place and we were drinking... all of a sudden we heard a bunch of thuds on the front door... so being a bunch of drunken fools lol we open the door thinking it was someone we knew... then we get dive bombed by "a BIG green bat!" lmao we didn't know there was such a large green moth, well, not until after when i researched it with a clearer head... in my defense, we were much younger (i'm almost 30 now) lol

anyway, again, love the bags and the flower is awesome too

 Shocked A luna moth!?! I haven't seen one of those for a while! They are quite lovely-but they only live for 2 days.  Cry

I love those purses too. Cheesy

they actually live quite a bit longer than that... a few months throughout their life span and all the cycles... in moth form, they live for 5-7 days... i read up on them after we got dive bombed by the big green bat lol http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luna_moth

Wow what a great muse.  Stunning bags.  I need that pattern.  Your flower is ace too.
