Its a crochet Morning!!

Heyy everyone!!
I hope you all are having a great day so far. We have very hottie hot day today. Its 95 F in Pakistan.
Humidity level is so high that its really tough to craft. Especially when you want to burn the crochet yarn in the end of your project, and you switch off the fan. Sigh! Dont ask.

Anyway, I'm here to share with you my crocheted butterfly.

The procedure is REALLY simple. It measures 1 inch tall, and 1 1/4 inch wide.
I'm going to note that down for you all to try it. Dont forget to post your finished butterfly here, or tag me in that so i can see..

*Embroidery floss
*Size 6 hook

Ch 4. Sl st into first ch to form a ring.

*Ch 4. 3tr (treble stitch) into ring. Ch 3, sl st into ring.* Repeat once.

*Ch 3. 3dc into ring. Ch 3, sl st into ring.* Repeat once.

Fasten off. Create abdomen and antennae.

Let me clear it that its NOT my own tutorial. I found the pattern on internet long ago. Its just that i memorised it so well, now i can make TONS of these butterflies. LOL.

For the abdomen and antennae I used beaded trim. Used my hot glue gun to adhere it to the body and twisted the ends to make them look like the antennaes.

You can use them on your cards, on your mini album cover, adhere a large paper clip behind that and turn that into a bookmark. Or You can turn that into your daughter's hair clip. Or try pasting it on her hairband. I'm sure she'll love that.

I'm signing out. I have to make few more of these pretties.
