Fluffy Textile Moths And Butterflies

by ChinaBambi

These alluring textile creatures are the products of artist Yumi Okita’s beautiful imagination and skilled fingers. The North Carolina-based creator sews, embroiders, and stitches multi-colored fabrics into gorgeous moths, butterflies, and other insects. They’re quite a lot bigger than their live originals – up to nearly a foot wide. These textile sculptures look incredibly life-like, but given their enormous antennas, creepy-crawly legs and unsettling fur threads, we’re happy they’re not real.

I love these so much.. the intricate delicate detail really brings these fluffy art pieces to life!

Much like Mister Finch who creates bunnies and mushrooms etc out of old vintage fabrics.. this is on par with his fantastic creations.. one day I will have both of their art works on my wall!
