Butterfly or Moth?

Mistakes can be learning experiences if we let them.  This "moth" is the result of my attempt at trying to make a butterfly with "eye spots" on the wings.

This was the original butterfly (above). It looked odd, but when I turned it upside down, it looked better.  The body was the wrong way around, but I removed the wings and turned the body upside down, then resewed the wings to the body. Now it looks a lot better (top photo).

Don't be afraid to push your ideas around a little. Try not to let them get the best of you.

btw, the Butterfly Tutorial is complete. It is being tested by a couple of my quilting friends, and may be released next week. It will be in PDF format, and available by email request only for a small fee.
