I am so glad I seen this crochet butterfly to use on hairbows,dresses floral arrangements or to add on decor instead of flowers all the time. How about making some in different color yarn and pinning to curtains or using on lamp shades. You see there are many uses for them and this is a easy crochet pattern to teach you how to crochet with fast results. I love these butterflies. Great video.
