Butterfly Sampler


Now here is Day-9. This time can you guess what these are made of?
These are made from sea shells, except for the head which I have stitched a crystal bead. I have used gold coloured thread for tacking them.

These shells are available in many shapes and sizes, some of them coloured too. Nice for stitching on saris, or dresses. But require careful washing and maintenance as they are easy to break.  

I hope you like it.

Let me know if you have any thing to say...Keep watching my blog for I am working on few saris. The moment they are finished, I will post. The works are something new and currently in fashion here....

The butterfly looks lovely... Cant believe they are made of shells... What do I ask for them at craft stores?

Iniyaal-Thanks for your comments. These are made of seashells and are available in those shops which sell embroidery materials like Kundans, thread, beads etc. I will upload pictures of some more of these material if possible by tomorrow.
