Butterflies can be flat, you know!!!


Having done the little 3D butterfly (nearly finished the web page) I thought of those who may not want a 3D body and decided to make another version which is flat!!

Here it is and I’m hoping to have both critters up and flying in a day or two. 

This version can be made all in one but it did mean some jiggling with the order of working the little critter. Many thanks to Martha who happened to drop by my inbox and was looking for something to do for a day or two!!! My goodness - she’s got an eye for detail, bless her cotton socks including the sock she’s currently knitting. Thanks, Martha.

I love this one! Have never been really comfortable with 3D. I don't think these butterflies look at all like dragonflies. My favourite butterfly of yours is the tiny SCMR one which I have made so many times now. And it is still a moment of magic, closing the mock ring and seeing the butterfly.

Oh yes, I like the flat version!

I like the flat one too, Jane.
As for it looking like a dragonfly, Maureen, I agree sort of with those who think it should be but I’m not going into a discussion with the designer as I don’t know who she is/was!!!! She called it a butterfly and she made the original 3D!!!! I’m trying to stick as closely as possible to the original!!!

The flat version is wonderful. Just think - you could have butterflies flying all over a blouse that would otherwise be 'blah.' Or butterflies flying on your kitchen curtains....or around the hem of a skirt or pants....and that's just for starters.
