Once upon a time... I found a pattern for a 3D butterfly in a Polish magazine "Diana Robótki Extra" 2/2006, BPV Polska Sp. z o.o., www.bpv.pl). After making hundreds of them ;) I started to think how to make the flat one. Finally I created those butterflies that I used for bookmarks. They are different than the original pattern, but I mention the one from the magazine, because it was my inspiration :). I asked the publisher and he agreed that I share the pattern modified by me. So here it is!

For the tassel make a long chain of a few threads, then sew it to the butterfly.

I starch the butterfly and the part of the tassel that is the butterfly’s body. Then I add the bead – it should have the big hole! I also use the hot glue (from the glue – gun) for the bead, so it won’t be missed.

what a wonderful gift idea!
Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to,
doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.
