A few years ago I made a very large mosquito, a piece that I still have and still love, Looking at her I decided that I wanted to do another winged insect, a dragonfly.  In my usual way, I found pictures to paste in my sketchbook then began working on a pattern. I wanted to duplicate the unique shape of the body as closely as possible. I had the perfect fabric, sequins and beads in my stash.

The finished piece is 18” wide by 22” long. Completely hand stitched. I love her.  I’ve already picked out fabrics for my next one.
