What materials did you use? size 10 cotton thread, a little bit of fabric glue to form the eyes and stiffen the bodies of the dragonflies

What are you most proud of? "designing" the dragonflies based on the butterflies

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you want to make the dragonflies, make a very large picot between the two small picots. After finishing and closing the ring, cut the thread rather short (about 3mm or so) and use a bit of white glue to form the eyes. Use a small brush or needle to apply a tiny amount of white glue to the inside of the very large picot, then twist to form the body. Block the wings to achieve the "dragonfly" shape.
