A lightbox or even your window on a bright day comes in handy for transferring designs.

I had grabbed a paper with printing on it for my graphite sketch so it was hard to see. I defined the lines on the paper with a sharpie marker. I wanted to concentrate on following the lines with my brush, not on seeing where they are!

I had washed a thin yellow/orange pigment on the fabric but it was too light with the black lines. So I repainted the color and added the white spots.

Since a butterfly is so often seen between sky and grass the blue/green background was appropriate. All creatures look best in their natural habitat!

Each side has three card pockets. The middle one is wide enough for business cards. I kept the others just wide enough for credit or ID cards to minimize the bulk at the edge. It was also easier to sew.

It’s good to have a plan. I don’t always have one.
