Eggs, flowers, pastel colors. All things we like to see in Spring. And why not add some butterflies, as a reminder that the hot Summer days are not so far off?

The egg itself is made with leftover polyester  that has a linen look (from pants I made a few years ago).

The wings are made with polyester (leftover from my children’s Halloween costumes), except for the pink wings that are from a silk blouse.

The body is embroidered with the satin stitch, the antennas with the back stitch and crosses, the flowers with the lazy daizy stitch and a bead at the centre.

I sew a “roll” of fabric over the seam with embroidery floss. The colors were chosen among those used for the butterfly.

The seam is now hidden.

The free pdf pattern can be found here, in French and in English.
