Basket of butterflies
Posted 11 August 2009 - 02:08 PM
They are very easy and quick to make - it takes me only 20-30 minutes to complete.
They have to be starched and here you can see my method:
In July it was my mother's birthday. My aunts (also crocheters) had a great idea and together we made a lot of butterflies. Then my mum got a big basket of 65 butterflies instead of flowers! She loved it!

Of all the things that I've lost,
I miss my mind the most.

What did you attach the butterflies too for putting them in the basket? Floral wires? It is so very very pretty.

The pattern is from the Polish magazine "Diana - Szydelkowe kwiaty" ("Diana - Crochet Flowers").
I use crochet thread - about 10'' - I have a collection of colours, it's Czech thread "Snehurka". I often make a butterfly as a break; now I'm working on a curtain for my window and when I'm tired with white thread, I make something colourful
GreenFuzzer - the wedding basket is absolutely great idea - and guess what? Just this week I made a few white butterflies, becuse on Friday it is my brother's wedding! I won't have such a big basket this time, I bought a small bike-shaped(!) basket and will fill it with a bunch of those lovely insects. They are not ready yet, but they will have bodies of pearls. I will show you this "project" as soon as it's ready

The thread-loving members here at Crochetville are already envious of the Polish magazines and patterns that we can buy here--there is nothing like them in the US right now. I wonder if I have that one? I know I bought a flower-themed magazine last year....
