Pretty Butterfly

OK, here it is!!! Sorry it took so long. I hope everything is clear. Enjoy!! Again, do what you want with the finished product. Do NOT sell the pattern. And please send pics!!! :)

And I used the magic ring in this pattern. I LOVE the magic ring. This was my first time using it and it was very easy to figure out. I got a tutorial from here, if you need one:

Sew all pieces on as desired. My wings in the back are not touching. No, I'll rephrase that. The top and bottom of each wing overlap, but the left and right wings do not touch. However, I just did it how I liked it and you can do it however you like. ;)

I've tried this three times and I've never gotten past the wings. No matter what I do, it doesn't come out right, the count of sts is off somehow.

I reallllyyyy want to make this for my granddaughter and maybe I'll fudge the wings to get it done.

Thanks for a beautiful butterfly!

Ok, thanks! Do you have the same name over on Crochetville? I'm there, too as "MainelyCrafty". I am going to try the pattern again this morning, since I have to have this done by Friday a.m. - it's Monday a.m. right now. I'll email you or PM on the 'ville when I get to the part I never get right.

I really appreciate your help. I kept thinking "Well, others have made it and apparently it comes out right", but for some reason the wing isn't coming out right for me, although I'm sure it must be something I'm doing wrong.

Very cute! It would also look pretty as part of the pillows of a little girl's bed.

I am also having trouble with the wings. I am not understanding the instructions very well. Any help would be great.
