Patchwork Butterfly from DMC

I spotted this colorful patchwork butterfly on DMC’s Commonthread website.

This is a beginner level project with all full stitches, so don’t be fooled or intimidated by all those colors 😉

You’ll find the pattern [here] on the Commonthread website as a PDF to download.

Enjoy & Happy Stitching!

This pattern was recently updated at Stitching the Night Away to have a larger graph page for printing out.

There are two options for downloading this pattern, you can pick it up at Stitching the Night Away or you can add it to your Craftsy account. It’s free either way 😉

This pattern is popular with several charity stitching groups to make quilts for those that are ill. World of Cross Stitch (WOCS) has made several quilts with these butterflies and each one is as unique as the person who stitched it, some of those are pictured here at the left.

Enjoy and Happy Stitching!
