I have designed this pattern mainly for my own pleasure. My very first pattern design was my monarch caterpillar, and since then I have had in mind to design a butterfly to accompany it.
Even I, with my love of the little and fiddly, think that this is quite tricky. Do not even think about it unless you like doing a little bit of embroidery, and are up for a challenge. But I do think the finished result is beautiful.
Some patterns say that you should not sell the finished product, but I think that as it is your make, you should feel free to do whatever you wish. For myself, I intend to keep my butterfly.
I have always liked making things, and although I have been knitting a lot recently, I also like sewing and other crafts.
I live on the outskirts of London, and work part-time at a local school, and have partly got back into making things because my children are always doing something creative. At school I love the days when we get really messy.
