Pattern Description:

Bring the outdoors inside with this clever set of interesting insects!
This fun and easy set of bugs will have you loving bugs inside the house as well as out!

Flutter by Butterfly is by far my most popular insect - and can be found listed separately! It has been used for making baby mobiles as well!

If you are looking for just a ladybug or caterpillar let me know and I will list them separately for you as well. They are $2.50 each if purchased separately.
There is also the Ladybug Stackers pattern as well which has 3 different sized ladybugs that stack on top of each other :)

This original CraftyDeb crochet amigurumi pattern is designed by Deb Richey.

All CraftyDeb patterns are for personal use only and not for resale or selling finished items online. They can be made for in person craft shows and fairs.

Your Craftsy purchase will also be made available for download on my main website at www.CraftyDeb.com.
