Wooden butterfly necklace by Magical525 Wooden butterfly necklace by Magical525
Last week when my bf arrived to visit he came bearing gifts - one of which was the latest copy of the Cross stitcher magazine. The freebie of the issue was a wooden butterfly necklace kit in purples, yellows and blues.

Butterfly Reference by Magical525

As I didn't like the colouring but loved the idea of the necklace I decided to make it into something I liked. I Googled butterflies and let the many patterns inspire me to create the pattern for this butterfly.

I used silk DMC threads for the black and greens and white pearlescant for the white bits. For an extra bit of sparkle I used kreinik blending filament (085) with all the silk threads. This gave all the greens a lovely sparkle and gave the black that iridescent black beetle sheen.

Stats:
Size: 3' x 2"/ 7,5 x 5 cm
Stitches: 400 + the back stitched "veining" + a bunch of half stitches around the edges.
Colours: 6 (S310, S700, S702, S909, Pearl: E5200 and kreinik blending filament 085)

Pattern available upon request.

Thanks! Butterflies should be sparkly when they can't flutter around :)
