Fabric Butterfly Origami

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.
Rabindranath Tagore

What do you do with 4.5″x6″ scraps? You make origami fabric butterflies!
I found this great free pattern by Michelle Roberts at CreativeBlonde. The instructions have photos to help guide, but I have so much trouble with following diagrams without seeing someone do it. So, I found some different videos on youtube to help me with direction.

This was the first one I made, and it took forever for me to understand the directions. After viewing tutorials, and studying Michelle’s photos, I was able to make three more. I finally got the hang of it by the time I made the fifth one.
Now, what do you do with fabric origami butterflies?
Make Tissue Pouches!
Next month, there will be a wedding in my family. I am known for getting emotional…so I made some tissue pouches. I call them Butterfly Booger pouches.


Then I made a butterfly head band and some hair clips for my granddaughter.
