Some Simple Butterflies

I told you I wanted to try out some amigurumi . . . I was hunting on Ravelry for patterns and got distracted by these simple butterflies and decided to try them out. I don't think they really count as amigurumi, but it's a good start!

I can't think of a use for them yet, but I'm sure they'll come in handy. I wish I knew some very little girls, because with a few more they'd be an excellent mobile. If nothing else, it's good crochet practice, although I didn't learn any new stitches. 


Of course, this was a Project 0 project (read more about my crafting for no cost journey here). The pattern was free on Ravelry. I used scrap yarn from my mum's stash. . . I mean really scrap yarn, this is what the blue looked like before I used it . .

and the crochet hook was mine, so total cost was the aimed for 0!! Got to love it.

That's all for now,



  1. These are so cute! Can't wait to see more of your adventures with amigurumi.

  2. Oh my goodness! These are lovely! I just used some of these babies on a wreath, and some gals have emailed me on how to make them. (I didn't have to make them, as I repurposed another project and used the Ready-Made butterflies!) May I feature your tutorial on a follow-up post on my blog? http://www.sugar-and-spice-and-everything-nice.com

  3. These are lovely, they would make gorgeous brooches or hair slides!


Thanks for commenting on my blog! I love hearing from you and appreciate every one.
