Crocheted 3D Butterfly

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.
