Pattern Description:

Butterflies are amazing little miracles- one of my absolute favorites. Every spring I look forward to their fluttering wings. Now you can have them around all year long! Make a bunch in your favorite colors-

This sweet butterfly is made from soft acrylic yarn and is perfect for playtime and nap time. It's machine washable, according to label directions and measures about 11 inches when finished. If you don't have any plastic eyes you can always use yarn and make your own. That way this toy can be given to any child under 3 or baby. Makes a wonderful shower or birthday gift! Or use as a large applique for a baby blanket to match nursery colors.

*You will receive 10 pages of detailed pattern with quality step-by-step photos, tips and options to make it how you like. It can also be printed without the photos to save your ink.
