Huge butterfly

oldcrafty(8)May 23, 2012

Does anyone know how to find the posting from sometimes last year of a huge butterfly for the yard. It was made on a frame and had fabric draped to create the wings that would flutter in the breeze? I thought I clipped it but guess I failed to do so and now can't seem to find it.

At the bottom of the discussions page there is a
search box. I put 'butterflies' in it and 8 pages
came up. I looked at several, but did not have time
to go through them all. Maybe if you look there...

Same here...I actually looked through them all last night Plus tried every other search term that crossed my mind. Came up with zilch. Even google was not forthcoming. Bummer. Hoping someone here remembers the post. It's beyond frustrating to be all geared up to start a project and not be able to locate it.

YEP......that's it!!!! Yippee. I could remember it being awsome. So how do I find your old post for directions? Or could you post them again? I knew I'd get help if I asked. Such a great group to be involved with!
THANKS to all and especially Becky.

Hi again,

This butterfly is made from an outdoor fence post purchased at a local lumberyard. I painted it first, and then mosaicked with glass tiles, mirror tile, 1/2 marbles and crash glass. The wings are a flexible tubing (like a hullahoop cut in half) with golf balls on the ends painted purple. The cloth wings took about five yards of fabric using a cardboard template as a pattern. My husband created a base to use so we can move it and bring her indoors when the weather is bad. We put her out when we are having an outdoor party or garden tour.

Oh wow...she's even more lovely up close & personal...
wouldn't have thought that possible. I loved her from
a distance.
