Butterflies Afloat

We picked up these colorful butterfly strands in Ethiopia (there were 2 on each "strand").  (Aren't they kind-of cool?)

I few weeks ago I picked out some really BRIGHT springy fabric (I may have been in the company of one little girl who likes all things pink) to make a rag wreath (see a cute tuturial here.)  The orange and pink combo is really quite cheery.  And, as a matter of fact, just so happens to coordinate really well with those butterflies.

So this is what I came up with--a whimsical ;) butterfly mobile for the girls' room.
