Default Butterflies?

Is it just me, or are Butterflies the new favorite insect on fabric? They seem to be everywhere!

I bought the most fabulous batik fabric - black with pastel butterflies on it - wish that I knew how to post pictures on here.

I would say that butterflies have been around a while -- I have a collection of butterfly fabric that is at least 5-6 years old (and I keep adding to it). I was glad to see the Laurel Burch Flying Colors re-issued as I did not have enough of one of the butterflies for a project.

Nikkit.u -- I would love to see the batik you described as it sounds yummy.

Well, compared to other insects, I think butterflies are the best choice on my fabric. Next to that would be ladybugs, and after that I'm not partial to anything with 6 legs. LOL

I love butterflies. They're right up there with dragonflies. So colorful.

It's funny you said that... I was just lusting over some Laurel Burch butterfly fabric a couple of hours ago... yum! I'm not sure about butterflies but it just seems like critters of all sorts are really popular now.

I think the popularity of Butterflies on fabric is great. ..Since bright colors are popular as well it seems to go together.
