zipper butterfly

I was bored with history, so I played with zipper again. I like this so much! This brooch should look like a butterfly… but this was really hard to make the ‘wings’ look the same. So, my butterfly had an accident:) and i look like it should look after accident.
I took me about an hour to make, and now my fingers had enough:)
Sorry for bad pics, but I haven’t any camera and I had to use my cell

Material Notes

zipper, scrap of leather to cover the back and safety pin:)

      Yes, you’re right! The colour is better for moths:) Let’s say it’s a hybrid of a butterfly and a moth:)

      Thanks:) But I’m kind of person for who everything should be perfect. And I know that it should like better… But know I’m quite satisfied!
