Butterfly Bunting

This week, although I haven't as yet put my previous daisy bunting on ribbon, I have gone ahead and started the next!

This one will be a beautiful row of butterflies...
I used Maries pattern, as it was simple and the perfect size.

So far I have done the crochet body, which is a flower shape, with 8 petals.

This will then get folded in half, to achieve the butterfly shape.

I'm thinking to do a black edging, to give it more of an 'Admiral' butterfly look?


This heartwarming true story is an American adaptation of a Japanese tale about a loyal dog named Hachiko. This very special friend would accompany his master to the train station every day and return each afternoon to greet him after work. Sadly his master departs one day, passes away and never returns to the station. Hachiko faithfully returns to the same spot at the station the very next day, and every day for the next nine years to wait for his beloved master. During his daily visits, Hachiko touches the lives of many who work near and commute through the town square. He teaches the local people love, compassion and above all unyielding loyalty. Today, a bronze statue of Hachiko sits in his waiting spot outside the Shibuya
*****Heartwarming, emotional (literally made me sob) 
Warm Bodies
Life for Julie (Teresa Palmer) and R (Nicholas Hoult) couldn’t be more different. R is a zombie; with a great record collection; limited vocab and an overpowering love of brain food. Julie is a human; beautiful; strong; open minded and all heart. When R makes an unexpected decision and rescues Julie from a zombie attack, his lifeless existence begins to have a purpose. As the unlikely relationship develops, R’s choice to protect her sets in motion a sequence of events that might just change both of their worlds forever.

  1. I would never have thought of this for a crochet butterfly but it looks so effective. Thank you so much for sharing this as an idea! x

  2. I had a real Oh I see moment reading this. I was thinking that maybe the butterflies were going to be added to the flowers later....brilliant idea though. very bright and cheerful. x

  3. Oooh those flowers are really pretty! I love the idea of the butterfly. :-)

  4. Both the daisies and the butterflys will be beautiful bunting. I do like the idea of a black edging.

  5. I love the combination of colours on the butterflies, I also thought at first they were flowers for the butterflies to sit on - but I can't wait to see a picture of the finished butterflies.

  6. Oh wow these are really pretty, they can be done in so many colour combinations.

  7. Oh wow! (sorry Picto - great minds think alike, lol!)what a fantastic way of making a butterfly. I may just have to pop over and have a look at Marie's pattern :) These will look beautiful as bunting.

  8. I love, love, love the butterflies! That's so clever!! - looking forward to seeing the bunting :-) Simmi x
