Butterflies are a lovely reminder of summer and a perfect gift all year round.
This pretty design is made in cross stitch on 16 count Aida and, like, all our patterns, is in PDF format and includes colour blocks and black and white symbols sheets. We list DMC threads but you can use any other make or perhaps swap the colours around to use threads you already have in your needlework box.
The background is in an eye-catching blue and pink flowers interspace green leave with shading for added interest. The cheery butterfly has a dramatic brown and gold body and the tail and antenna are done in very easy black backstitch.
Butterflies are lovely creatures full of color and majesty, though they are around for only a short time they show sunshine and warmth wont be far away.
If you like this design then take a look at our others. There’s a Fairy with butterfly style wings which would be fun to make as a card or gift for a friend.
