  1. The first frame shows a large circle and a small circle for the left side of the butterfly. The right side has already been added. I started with the small circle, then the large circle on the right side of the butterfly. Now I am attaching the left side of the butterfly.
  2. You fold the circle about 1/3 of the way up to form a straight edge along the bottom with both circles.
  3. Fold the bottom points of the large circle together and run the needle through, pulling snug and securing. You will want to shape and adjust your wing at this point.
  4. Fold the bottom points of the small circle together and run the needle through, pulling snug and securing. You will want to shape and adjust your wing at this point.
  5. Knot and secure your butterfly. Hide the tail.
