Butterfly Pattern

Have you been collecting the hexagon-framed embroidery patterns that I've been creating each month? It's time for another and of course, it's the Fluttering Butterfly.

The full color version of this has the hexagons on the wings filled in with different colors, which you can do with satin stitch on this pattern. Or, try outlining the hexagons in one color, then stitching another line in a different color inside those lines. But those are just two ideas...I'm sure you'll find even more wonderful ways to stitch this little lady!

If you make something with this, I'd love to see! Tag your Twitter or IG photos with @molliejohanson or add pics to the Wild Olive Flickr group!
