I used linen, felt, water-based fabric paint and vintage lace as a stencil to create this fabric Atlas Moth (Attacus Atlas) to bring you a realistic yet wearable insect brooch. It's big, but not life-sized!

The atlas moth is one of the world's biggest moths with a wingspan of 10-12 inches.

My fabric version has a wingspan of 6" and is 4" high (15.25 x 10 cm).

The body is stuffed with polyfil.

Backed with wool felt. Scraps of satin for the white triangle markings. Machine stitched veins.

Wear it at your shoulder, on the back of a tank top, on a pocket, on your sleeve...show your love of these elegant insects!

This item is MADE TO ORDER; please allow 3 working days from receipt of payment to shipping, thanks!

Thanks so much Kanokwalee, http://www.etsy.com/shop/kanokwalee, for the inspiration and the request for a custom Atlas Moth. Without you, I may not have tried to make a moth with such complex wing markings!
