Make your own crochet butterflies
« on: March 30, 2012, 05:14:35 pm »
Ok Ladies...here is the link for the pattern for the butterflies.
http://littlebirdiesecrets.blogspot.com/2010/06/how-to-crochet-butterfly.html

I did change it up.  She does the two big parts of the wings then the little parts.  I do one big, the two little, then finish with the other big.  That way the start/finish is hidden under the body of the butterfly!

Have fun!  I've used floss and twine.  The twine ones are on my heart layout (the colorful one).

And here is a link for you tube videos --> http://www.naztazia.com/

Happy crocheting!

Hmmm ... maybe if I played and played and played I could figure one out, they are adorable.

Tania...I taught myself.  I bought one of those "teach yourself to crochet" books from Walmart.  You do need the smaller hooks for those...and floss...quick and easy!

I agree with Thnia. Those are as cute as could be, but in the time it would take me to teach myself to make them, I could have bought them and scrapped them and moved on to another LO. LOL

But buying them would defeat the purpose of the budget tips..  hehe   These are so cute.
