Butterfly Basket 2

Filed under: Butterfly Baskets

This is the second of the Butterfly Basket series & is a “Pinsations” original design & stitch selection. The pin is added to the piece so that the pin can be removed, worn, & replaced. 

The flowers are Milanese Pinwheel. The basket is Perspective. The stem is Ray. As in the first basket, I like the shading. I used a light and a dark brown boucle to get the layered effect. The butterfly picks up the yellow & brown.

Books used:

  • The Needlepoint Book by Jo Ippolito Christensen.
