Butterfly's

Recommended Posts

 

Here is a picture of 3 little butterfly's I crochet for my daughter. I think they are called "Fridgies". They are about 2 3/4" across with a magnet in back. I didn't used pipe cleaners for antenna's as suggested in this pattern. I just crocheted tight chain and attached a bead on the end. I thought that would look little better.

I think  "I went to town with that" ..LOL. I crocheted 15 of them. I just need to add antennas to rest of them. 

I never crocheted any "Fridgies" before I thought that was just a waist of time. I think I changed my mind... :).

 


They are made with sport weight Mercerized cotton.


Here is that link to that pattern:

Thank you very much!:)

 

My daughter wanted a very bright colors. She loves that very bright yellow and that bright dark blue. She got those colors in her kitchen table cloth. 

 

I was having a very hard time to find that bright yellow in worsted weight yarn for another project for her - Hot Pads. It is like a "Sunflower" yellow, I love that too. Rest of that color I used it up for a pair of potholders over a year ago. They use to have that yellow in Sugar and Cream but they don't anymore:(. I did finally found that shade of yellow in Bernat cotton yarn. I was very happy and bought a lot of that.

They are great! I used to make "butterfly baskets" where I put the butterflies instead of flowers. I usually make butterflies with thread so they need starching.

I seen your work with thread, it is beautiful! :). I can't work with thread very well. I can only crochet small pieces. Now I bought a set of Clover hooks & OTT Light maybe that will make little easyer..??.

Love your butterflies.  I have a similar pattern that I make occasionally.  The beads on the antenna is a really good idea!!

Thank you! :)

 

Those butterfly's would probably look better with little longer antenna's. But since there is no wire I did not want them to get "floppy" LOL.
