attacus cecropia

Another butterfly except this one is a moth.     This is my rendition of an attacus cecropia with a wingspan of 6″!!   I was trying to use only cotton threads but broke down and bought some polyester.  Seems polyester comes in a wider array of hues and values than does 100% cotton.  I do love colors…

This  moth at 7″ wide and 4″ tall is just slightly larger than actual size, and is free motion machine embroidery on water soluble stabilizer.
