If an entire purse or pillow of beetles is a little much for you, check this out. I took this photo in Melissa Shirley’s booth at Columbus Market.
The same beetles as on the purse, but each is individually framed in a shadow box just like a bug collector would. For the sake of keeping your finisher sane, I would probably just stitch the bug body and then let the finisher add the legs and antennae. I thought this was a very cool idea.

Were is the pattern for this I would love to make some bugs of my own!
