Mary and I had fun building bug wallhangings using scraps of fabric and our button stash. You can mix and match parts to create your own special creature. We made small wallhangings – about 14″ by 17″. The pattern has directions to make a soft book with velcro parts to interchange and make new bugs. It also has directions to make a soft doll and a 30″ by 30″ wallhanging (larger than the wallhangings that we made).
Mary and I choose the striped border first and then used the colors in the border for the bug parts. I did not quilt my mini-wallhanging before I fused on the bug body and parts. Mary quilted her background first before adding the fused parts. I think it is easier quilt first. After I quilted my background, I needed to add some quilting to the bug body to make everything lay flat. Keep having fun creating and quilting.
