I have made several of these in the past few years. My latest use was to make the pattern and applique it onto another quilt. I also had it have the pattern enlarges, but it was done by a friend who took it to a place that blows up architect's drawings. I made foam board templates and will more than likely use it again.
this quilt is super easy and fun to make, still finishing up my first one, love the idea to add ribbons to the back so the kids can "fly" around in it. Does have alot of scraps, but think i will be able to use them again, I got materials with different textures, and found it to be a bit expensive, but still worth it, cant wait to see my girls enjoying it. thanks
How do I get pattern to print? Only numbers & arrows print!!!!!
THis is a great project. However it takes longer than 6 hours. I used the comments everyone else had and went to Staples and for less than $6 got enlarged. Used other paper and traced pattern. Picking out material and how I wanted fabrics to be placed was my biggest challenge. I did each wing piece on both sides in sequence to make surethey were in order. I waited to cut the backing out til the front was done to make sure they matched. I used cut outs to label and date it on the back, it is for the new GD coming this month--Will have to make one for the older sister now. Thanks for sharing the pattern and everyone for the useful comments.
I can't get into the pattern to print this project. Alos if any one has the bath mitts for children would you please send both patterns. I don't know why I can't download. Thank You FN
I cannot get this pattern to print for me. Can someone scan theirs and email it to me or something?
This project was very easy to do. It really does only take about 6 hours. I added my own touches by stuffing the body with batting and adding ribbons on the backside at the top of the wings as handles so that the child can "Fly" around with the quilt around them! I made one and have 7 people who want them!
I took the pattern to work and enlarged to 200% Then to Staples had it enlarged to 400% I quilt it like a quilt that you put together with the batting first then the back right side up and then the top right side down and then u turn it right side out. I leave the backing just as it is I don't cut around it until after I sew all around it and leave a small opening for turning dont forget to clip the corners. I also stuff the whole body and quilt around it. I have made 18 of these butterflys and sold them. Now on to make 1 more for my granddaughter Ashlynn. Good Luck.
