Dragonfly and Flutterby

The friend who commissioned Project Dragonfly has a birthday this week.
I devised a small dragonfly for her card..


It was made in two parts


wings in a magic circle then body.


It can be detached from the card to hover freely!

I had the idea for the magic circle wings after hooking this beautifully simple butterfly


Only 10g of stash busted including Dragonfly prototype...but the butterfly is so quick I'm sure some more will wing their way off the hook!
