Nowadays we get felt in all craft stores. There are many things you can do with felt mostly small stuffed miniatures, toys, ornaments etc.,.
Cutting felt to the exact shape is a tough job for beginners like me.
I took two equal felt pieces and used a cut paper butterfly as a model. But yet I was unsuccessful in cutting the exact shape.
One good thing is that I cut both the pieces together at a time. Even if there was any mistake in the shape it didn't matter much. They would be sewn together.
I have sewn both the pieces together by blanket stitch.
Do not put the stitches overlapping, it doesn't look good. The first butterfly I did, the stitches were too close and they looked messed up. Anyway I decided to retain them. Looking from far no one can make out the messed up butterfly.

We get colored wooden beads in the craft shop. You can get the plain ones and colored them with matching acrylic colors.
