If you’re someone who loves nature, or have a friend who does, this Papilio Ulysses Swallowtail Cross Stitch Pattern, which is an addition to our website butterfly collection, would be a very welcome gift.
We’ve travelled across the world to the rainforest for inspiration for our Papilio Ulysses Swallowtail Cross Stitch Pattern. These beautiful butterflies are found in tropical areas of New Guinea and the Moluccas. They live just below the canopy in rainforests.
We love to design in color and the electric blue wings of the Papilio Ulysses Swallowtail were ideal for an interesting picture to stitch. There are six beautiful colors on this chart which measures 70 x 60 stitches and it won’t take you too long to make on 16 count white Aida. The finishing touch is to outline the butterfly wings in black DMC thread which makes it stand out from a distance.You can download the chart direct from our website.
When in flight, the bright blue of the butterfly is instantly recognisable as it darts about the rainforest.

If you’re looking for ideas to make your Papilio Ulysses Swallowtail Cross Stitch Pattern picture individual, you could get a small wooden craft hoop, like the one in the picture, and then paint it a contrasting color with craft paint, before mounting your picture inside it. Then the person you give it to can just display it on their wall without needing to get it framed. Just make sure the paint is dry before you mount the picture though!
