I found images of these totally cute crochet butterfly (rattle)…
I wanted to make some but I could not find a pattern for them… I looked and searched… but no luck!
So I had to figure out the pattern myself.. it went ok… if I say so myself… What you think?
at this point I was still working on the pattern as there are some details I did not think were good enough… And the mouth I need to learn to do better!
I will get there…
This is the second version of the pattern and I like it so far, the bug/butterfly/bumblebee is not big but has the perfect size for a little one.
My pattern is just an inspiration of the original and therefor not as big (or wide as they look in the pictures I found) but if you want the pattern for my version, here it is in English and in Danish.
