Pretty Butterfly

OK, I really have been working on this baby blanket, especially now tha my Mom told me that the baby blanket she needs is for March, not May! Well, heres my progress.



















I just have a few more rows to sew on, then the border. It should only take me a few more hours. I really love this pattern. Its from an old Crochet With Heart Magazine. I really miss this mag. I have no idea why they ever stopped making it. I used to make at least 2 of every pattern in each mag. I didn't buy another mag until recently with the Crochet and Crochet Today, which are now my new faves! I need a subscription.


Anyways, I needed a little break from this blanket and I have always wanted to try amigurumi, cuz they look so cute and quick and easy to do. So, I searched. I found lots of really nice patterns, but I really wanted a butterfly and I couldn't find one free. I can't buy them on line cuz I don't have a credit card, they are dangerous in my hands! Anyhow, I wanted a butterfly, so I thought I could try to make one. I came up with this one. I think shes pretty cute. I am proud of her since shes my first toy without a pattern. And my first time trying the magic ring. I think I will use this method ALL THE TIME! ITs great and easy!.


Well, heeres my butterfly. OH! And before I forget, I saw that my poll is now closed and you guys like the braided trim the best. I thank you all for your responses adn your comments on my hat. And I hope that you all enjoy making them. And, by the way, I would love to see finished pics and you all have my permission to do with the finished product what you please. Just not the pattern, that ones mine! lol

I admire your creativity - I can follow directions but not come up with the ideas :)

I noticed in amigurumi, the eyes tend to be tiny and widely spaced. Did you experiment with the face any? I love purple - cute.

Ya, I did notice that too about the eyes and when I first made hers I thought they were way too huge! But then I thought they were cute and kind of fit for bug eyes. I don't know. I also wanted to crochet eyes on instead of sew a button or beads cuz I have young kids that may want to taste a button or beads.

Waaay TOO cute! You are very creative. I'm sure if you wanted to sell finished items or the pattern that a LOT of people would be interested!
