Tammy I love these butterflies. Have you remembered yet where you found the pattern on the net so that some of us might be able to make the same bookmark.......hint hint hint. :lol I love all the different colors you use. I wonder what they would be like done in threads or pearl cotton or even a full 8 strands of embroidery floss or or or. :think

BTW I'm the GreenFuzzer Tammy :devil We wouldn't want to confuse anyone. :eek

Hi Tammy!

This is the basic pattern I used for the butterflies. All the ones above are in different sized thread (mostly size 10). Enjoy!!!!
