Butterfly Garden

from Artfabrik
(7) Name: 'Quilting : Butterfly Garden
Butterfly Garden Butterfly Garden
Butterfly Garden Butterfly Garden (detail)

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • how to fuse fabric
  • know basic hand embroidery stitches

Pattern Description:

Bring this cheerful garden into your home and attract colorful butterflies.

This easy to make design features a simple way of transferring the fabric shapes to fused fabrics. In this sample, the gradated fabric colors of the Rainbow Rich coloway from www.artfabrik.com are used along with a deep blue batik fabric. Hand dyed threads from Artfabrik make up the hand embroidery.

A fabric kit for the pattern is available at: http://artfabrik.com/artfabrik-store/patterns/flowers-and-leaves-patterns/

Each month I give away a different free pattern if you order one of my Craftsy patterns. (Please note that if you buy multiple Craftsy patterns during the month, the free pattern would still be the pattern of that month.)

I really appreciate your interest in my patterns and hand-dyed fabrics and threads. Sharing with fellow artists makes my day!
