Thank you! I have to try this after my cat wakes up and leaves my lap. Then I can check my yarn collection. :D

Thank you! I'm such a newbie to crochet but I very much wish to try this.

I love how you simplify patterns, and keep them just as cute as a button. A few years ago, I heard about a project which entailed making a butterfly, then giving it to someone who needed hope. Well...the patterns were all too fiddly for me, so I gave up hope and did not participate. Now...maybe I can!

Thanks for the tutorial. I have. Ever done anything like this, but your decorations make it doable.

Moirin O'Connor

Lovely. You have inspired me to use my leftovers in cotton vogue.Thank you.


Your two-tone little butterfly is very pretty. I quite like the double butterflies as well as they look lovely spray starched with their wings arranged in an open flying position. I have made many of those.
A great tip I discovered for the antennae is to add some white glue to stiffen them and they always remain 'perky' and stay in place!


Always a delight to watch you create a pattern and then make a rainbow of items in the pattern you just created. Delighted for the butterfly pattern!! THANKS !
