The Butterfly Project

The Holocaust Museum Houston is collecting 1,500,000 handmade butterflies for their Butterfly Project, each representing a child who died during the Holocaust.  Here is my butterfly:
Yes, that IS a lot of buttons!  I wanted it to look like something a child would like.  I sewed them onto a few layers of felt with embroidery floss and added some pipe cleaner antennae.  The butterflies will be displayed at the museum in 2012.  The deadline for contributing butterflies is June 30, 2011, so there's plenty of time to participate.  See the website for the details.
