Here's the recipe - DON'T LAUGH!
-Iridescent ribbon that fell off 4yr old girl's bike handlebars (neighbor's kid - it's all over my yard!)
-Foam head was cut from pipe insulation (recent home improvement project)
-Chartreuse Craft Fur Plus
-Hook size varies depending on size of dragonfly. Use your own judgement here.
1 - Tie the craft fur on top of the hook shank. I went almost to the eye of the hook to give the fly some girth along the body.
2 - Fold the ribbon into loop and tie on top of the fur towards the front. Put two loops on each side. I added a dab of hot glue to the wraps.
3 - Cut the foam into a dragonfly head shape leaving tabs on the front/back for the tying thread. A dab of hot glue on the bottom helps secure to the hook shank. While it's not anotomically correct, I put the foam head right on top of the wing wraps to help protect the delicate ribbon connection point.
4 - I used a black sharpie to draw lines into the craft fur.
I hope to use it this weekend. We'll see how it goes!
