sheepBlue showed me how to do this sort of embroidery. She's posted a great tutorial about if you'd like to try it yourself. It's not any more difficult than ordinary embroidery but the results are pretty nifty if I do say so myself.


The edges are wired so the wings can be gently manipulated into curvy shapes.


It's got dark fuseable interfacing pressed to the back for stability (& to hide the messy stitching) and it's mounted on a small padded circle with a magnet in the back.


There it is on my fridge where I'd liked it to have stayed but it flew away to a swap partner Smiley.


If you want to make one I posted some tips of my own. Basically I show you how to cheat in case you aren't a great stitcher. I'm not either but fake it 'till you make it is what I say!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
