I have many projects going right now, I can't seem to stick to just doing one thing at a time. Here are some butterflies that I've been working on. My grandmother requested 22 of these little guys for her social club, to give out as gifts. I plan on attaching magnets to the backs and they can flutter and flit all over some lucky person's fridge
I make the body with some black cotton thread and cut the ends fairly short to mimic antennae, sorry the pic doesn't show that in too much detail.
The pattern I came up with is really easy and they work up fast. But of course I get bored stiff doing the same thing over and over and over, so I really have to get my butt in gear to finish them all!!!
***Update*** Thanks everyone for taking a liking to my little butterflies! I do have a pattern/tutorial posted here, http://featherwingcrochet.blogspot.com/2009/07/butterfly.html
it's fairly easy, but if you have any problems, let me know. Happy hooking!
