Butterflies

These butterflies are very beautiful and funny, they can appeal to any child that will attract his attention. They look like natural butterflies in the color of their wings, but unlike living butterflies, they will not be able to fly away or die when clapping with their palms when the child catches them. Inside, each of them has funny rattles that rustle in any movement of the toy; more butterflies are hung from the strings to the pencil and can be rolled up if the child gets tired of playing with them.
 Butterflies
To make such butterflies, you will need: - Black fabric and fabric of blue color; - Black, red or brown fabric with a fleece surface; - Threads of red, white, blue and black colors; - Ribbon from under the bow, needle, large bead;
- Scissors, glue, cotton wool or sintepon; - White cardboard paper; - Colored paper; - Pencil or fell glasses for hanging toys; - Covers from under carbonated drinks, thick cardboard, beads of different sizes. For making butterflies torso, I took a cloth from a headdress, cut out torso samples and sewed them outside, leaving a small indent at each front, in the neck.And then filled with cotton, using tweezers (tweezers help further push the filler into a thin and narrow hole):

Then I started creating the heads; I decided to make rattles for them from the caps of carbonated drinks. Fill with beads, cover them on top with pieces of cardboard, made in size especially for them. But I did not have one lid from under the carbonated drink, and I decided to take an oblong lid from a bottle of perfume instead.

Covers filled with beads, it would be most convenient to glue together the super glue, but it can be toxic to children. Ordinary glue would also not fit due to the fact that it is not reliable and is applied too wide to the surface of the paper, because of which the beads can stick to the lid; I preferred to glue the lids with transparent tape. We make the green rattle the outer shell of a black cloth, - such as shown in the photo:Butterflies
First you need to join the seam with the intermediate sides in each round figure, and then stitch them together,wearing a rattle:

Now we sew heads to the bodies of toys (for this we needed to leave a small indent at the bodies in the neck):

Now take a pink bow and create folds in it so that the bow becomes lush. Then, after correcting the folds, divide it into three equal parts, then sew on to the toys:  Butterflies

Cut out cardboard wings, antennae and eyes:

Next, we make two more pairs of antennae from black paper with a satin surface and glue pupils to white eyes:

Glue the eyes to the head, and then, making a small hole in the fabric we insert the heads of the toy inside and glue, then sew up the hole made for entering the antennae:

Next cardboard wingsButterflies sew and give them color. I chose black, yellow and green colors and painted the wings, giving them the color of natural whitewaters that exist in nature. Here is a view of the wings from the front:

Here is the view of the wings from the back side:

We sew wings to butterflies:

Now we undertake to make a bow of blue fabric. Taking the fabric, fold it so that it becomes narrow, then sew it with a small stitch outside:

Give the finished fabric a bow shape and sew on top of a bead :

Now we tie each toy by a string to a stick or pencil, and we tie a bow.

Everything - our toys are ready. The child will be interested in playing them, but because the wings and eyes are easy to sew, they can be replaced with new ones that will be more beautiful.You can add paws to the torso, or smile to face.  Butterflies  Butterflies  Butterflies
