tatted...

finally, i've finished my butterfly bookmark! here are some pics...

my 'practice' butterfly. started the bookmark with this, but then i din like the way the colours got sort of segregated and separated according to the wings. so i decided to start again...

here's a close-up view:
















and so, ta-da! the final finished product:

i love the way the yellow changes hue randomly. but eh, how come in the pic, the end looks broader than the top? hmm... i've not noticed it in the actual thing. must be the angle the pic was taken!

wait, here's another view:


i couldn't be bothered to hide the ends, so i just made a knot. if anyone can spot the knot, just pretend u dun see it, ok? :Þ
