See that cute little green caterpillar? She has a secret! When you turn her inside out she transforms into a sparkly purple butterfly! This clever softie is fun to make and fun to play with. And that "Wow!" moment when you first turn a her inside out and see the transformation is priceless! This is the second in a series of reversible toy patterns I am designing. The first one was an egg that reverses into a cute yellow chick and is also available in my Craftsy pattern shop. Check out my blog post to see an animation of the caterpillar/butterfly toy in action! ***** You can sell items made from this pattern as long as you follow these regulations:?? 1.

I am a plush pattern designer, craft book author, and sewing teacher. I design patterns for stuffed animals from my home studio in Wellesley, Massachusetts. Sewing dolls and toys is my passion! I strive to make my patterns easy to follow by including step-by-step photos all along the way and writing clearly. My toys are clever and fun to sew. I think you're going to love making them! You are welcome to sell the toys made from my patterns! Since 2005 I've been sharing my ideas on design, technique and the culture of craft through my blog ( I have a master's degree in education from Harvard and taught middle school social studies in Mississippi and Massachusetts before becoming a textile artist and the mother of three girls. My daughters, now age 8, 6, and 18 months, are the happy recipients of all of her prototypes! <br> My first book, <i>The Artful Bird: Feathered Friends To Make and Sew,</i> was an ALA Booklist top ten craft book of 2011 and I have a new book coming out about soft toy design!
