I had a comment and emails from this blog readers about 3D butterfly.
The patterns were not developed by me; however, I made a lot of butterflies from the different patterns and I have revised pattern several times to make my version of 3D butterfly pattern. I am glad to share my 3D butterfly pattern.

2. Make Body and Antennae: ch 30. Fasten both ends of ch (do not twist the ch loop).
3. Place the antennae piece around the center of the butterfly and pull knot through the loop.
4. Cut off excessed thread to make antennae.
Hope you enjoy making 3D Butterfly!

great job! Thank you for sharing. Where would you start on this butterfly if you wanted to add a square to the back to add them together as an edging? Kind of like a strip of lace?
