Description

This textile Emperor Gum Moth (Opodiphthera eucalypti) can be custom made as either a headband, brooch, or hair clip. The moth is made of layers of soft blushing pink silk dupioni. The detailing on the wings - both the veining and eye spots- are created with free motion embroidery in a variety of naturalistic colors- dusty rose, fuchsia rose, amber, lemon yellow, black, grey, and off-white. The wingspan measures approximately 4.5" (11.4 cm) across, and the length is 3" (7.62 cm) including the antennae... just about life size!

The fuzzy body is made with a plush faux fur that's been lightly colored with fabric paints. Delicate feather antennae give the moth a realistically sweet finish. The wings are reinforced with interfacing to give a bit of strength to the design.

I can make this design as either a headband (your choice of a black or brown band), a brooch, or a hair clip. If you choose to have this design made as a headband, I do make them in such a way that the position of the moth is adjustable- just slide it to the position you like best. The headband is a slim, minimalist steel band that has been wrapped in your choice of black or brown ribbon. It is bendable for maximum comfort on your head.

Made with love and care in a smoke-free home.
