Spring has sprung any time of year with these fast little butterflies! Using a steel hook and embroidery floss make these in five different sizes. They can literally be used for any purpose. They work up fast and since you are using floss, the color selection is endless. Will brighten any day to make, give or receive these cuties.

These tiny little butterflies are too cute. There is an endless list of possibilities with what to do with these. They can be attached to almost anything. A good project also to use up some odds and ends pieces of yarn that are lying around the sewing room too. A great idea and a great project.

These look super easy to whip up-even kids could make them when they're just starting out on crochet. They're simple but colorful and fun. I'd love to make a bunch of these and sew them around a crocheted tote bag. It's also a great way to use up those little bits of yarn you have left that are not enough for a large project.

I am in love with these cute little butterflies. I love versatile patterns! How cute would these look, made with magnets? Imagine a rainbow of butterflies all over your refrigerator? They could be added to hats, totes, headbands, anywhere. What about making them into a garland to hang in a baby's room? So many ideas!

Wow Inukshuk84 I can see what you mean! You've got a great list of applications started in your comment. I think I'll try them on greeting cards and bookmarks. It's unique too that they're made from embroidery floss because of the many colors available. Added bonus is the videos they've included--what teacher's hearts!
