    Many thanks for all the wonderful replies... I failed to mention, the fabric I used was cut from her outgrown clothing.. except for the baby blue which was one of her sister's outgrown cotton nightgown... it was the first and last time I used 2" charms.. The idea for the butterfly was from one of her coloring books....

    sorry, did not realize how blurry the picture was...
