Butterfly bookmarks


Recommended Posts

Once upon a time... I found a pattern for a 3D butterfly in a Polish magazine "Diana Robótki Extra" 2/2006, BPV Polska Sp. z o.o., www.bpv.pl). After making hundreds of them ;) I started to think how to make the flat one. Finally I created those butterflies that I used for bookmarks. They are different than the original pattern, but I mention the one from the magazine, because it was my inspiration :). I asked the publisher and he agreed that I share the pattern modified by me. So here it is!

For the tassel make a long chain of a few threads, then sew it to the butterfly.

 

I starch the butterfly and the part of the tassel that is the butterfly’s body. Then I add the bead – it should have the big hole! I also use the hot glue (from the glue – gun) for the bead, so it won’t be missed.

May I ask if you used thread (if so, what size) or yarn?

I use different kinds of thread - it is usually the thread that has about 600m for 100g so I guess it is 5'' thhread (but I am not sure). It is good for bookmarks, but you can use any thread or yarn.
