BUTTERFLY CHRYSALIS POUCH PATTERN

Hi! Have you seen the butterfly patterns I have available for free on my blog? We have Bria the butterfly which is the biggest and Stella the butterfly, the smallest. I have created matching pouches to keep them in. I created them with the intention to resemble a chrysalis!

I think it would be so fun to safe keep the butterfly’s and have kids open them up like a big surprise! I hope you enjoy this pattern and check out Bria and Stella! To insert the butterfly’s into the pouch just fold in their wings in the front and they should fit just right.

Feel free to post pictures of your finished projects and/or links to your shops so all can see! I love when you tag me @arianaehall on all social media!

Please no sharing pictures or patterns are allowed. Feel free to make as many to sell and gift. I just ask to give credit to Ariana Hall. Thank you

Fasten Off and weave in all the ends. The chain 2 spaces will be where you will weave through the tie.

TIES:

Chain 90 

fasten off and cut excess yarn from the ends. This is what you will use to weave through the chain 2 spaces.

Find the two front chain two spaces and insert one end through the right side of the chain 2 space and work in an ‘S’ motion, in and out of the spaces going counterclockwise. Adjust ties as needed to even them out.

You can leave it as is or add the flowers and sew them on on the ends. Buttons would be cute as well.
