More butterflies!!!!

Of course yesterday's pattern doesn't have to be used for a bookmark!!!  Even I've worked that out!!!

Here are a few made with some thread which has been in my stash for ages.  I've no idea what it is but it's worked out at about a size fifty, I guess. 

I've no idea what I'm going to do with these wee bugs but I'm sure they'll find themselves being used for something soon enough!!!

Those are sooooooooo pretty! I've downloaded the pattern & will try it out this evening. Thanks again for sharing it with us!

I can see these used on crazy quilt blocks, or appliqued onto all kinds of items or mounted to a pin-back & pinned to a jacket pocket. Hows about adding a jumpring for a pretty pendant? A white butterfly would be pretty on my Chrismas tree, too. A flurry of little butterflies mounted on a journal cover would be a really nice gift.

You have a very pretty rabble of butterflies! I just love the colors! I'm not sure when I'll get to it, but I've already printed off the pattern.

SO PRETTY!! Katie has some wonderful ideas - I especially like the journal. I imagine one cover in some pretty fabric with a smattering of these pretty flutterbys. I also think they would look pretty on the end of a wire and added to a floral arrangement. They seem small enough to stay fluttery and not go floppy

No new book then! Well, the butterflies are lovely, just by themselves!
