Absolutely gorgeous!!! I did indeed download it, but given that 75% of all projects I undertake end up frustrating piles of disorganized thread, I probably won't have anything to show off;) Thanks for all effort you put into designing it and sharing such a lovely pattern!

'Hope' is such a pretty butterfly. Thank you so much for the free pattern. I have downloaded it and will tat it soon.

Is there a particular colour you would like to see it in?

Jeff Hamilton said...

I downloaded my copy. It's a very pretty butterfly. I'll tat is as soon as I can. Thanks for sharing it. Oh, my shuttle arrived today as well. It's gorgeous, and nice to use. I'll post more about it on my blog.

I downloaded my copy and intend to send one of these darling little flutters to veteran Star Trek actor Walter Koenig, whose son has been missing since February 16. I intend to include a brief note, "Don't lose hope."

Thank you so much for sharing this pretty pattern.

I so appreciate you sharing this pattern with us. I downloaded it, printed it and as soon as the infection in my little finger has healed I'm going to tat some to go on some blouses for my granddaughters-- it looks like the perfect shape for them.

You have such a wonderful talent for designing - and in so many different media.

Your generosity in sharing your patterns is very much appreciated. As with your treble clef, which had such clear instructions, I'm sure this will be equally easy to follow.

I've printed a copy and hope to post this sweet butterfly in my blog soon, as a harbinger of Spring!

M said...

Very cute pattern, thank you.

Anke said...

I love your butterfly and of course saved the file.

Thank you for a splendid design!

Bonnie said...

I will for sure make one and send it to The Butterfly Project.

Thank you for sharing so much of yourself with us. "Hope" is just another way you've shown us how much you care.

How lovely, "Hope" looks really nice in the pink colourway (Wednesday's blog).... but then I am biased....
Very clever!
Thank you so much for sharing. x

Natasha said...

This butterfly is lovely! I still don't have the skills to do it, but I've increased them in the past month. I hope I'll be tatting her soon. Thanks for the pattern!

Thank you for this wonderful butterfly! I've downloaded it in the 'hope' of getting back to tatting again. It's a very beautiful butterfly and the pattern looks like it will be easy to follow. When I get it done I will post about it on my blog.

This is an awesome pattern. I have been tatting for 4 years, off and on. This past summer I went to the Palmetto Tatters Tatting weekend and bought some books and started to make butterflies- all sorts of butterflies. I really like yours and can't wait to make it. Thanks so much for posting it!!

I been tatting for sometime, my mother tats. I have enjoyed all the free pattern that I have found on-line. This one will be shared with a person who is studing to be a nurse and needs to hide a tattoo. I use several needlecraft in my projects and plan to place the hope butterfly on a knitted arm band that is threaded on this person's watch. Thank You for sharing.

Alison said...

Emilie said...

Thanks for this great pattern, I tried it out today and it turned out great. I used it as an embelishment on a dress I've made for my daughter, I plan on making two more to finish it off. Thanks again.

Hey, I also downloaded the pattern! Thank you so much!

I can't promise to tat her right now, actually I can't for at least a weak. I'm sitting in a hospital being radioactive and I don't have my shuttles with me. (Very annoying.)

I thought cancer treatment is bad for your joints but mostly it's the boredom that drives me up the walls.

Anyway, after I get out this project is getting done! :)
Thanks again, it's much appreciated!!

Barbara Gordon said...

Thank you so much for the Hope Butterfly pattern. A good way for me to practice my split rings. It sure is a pretty one to..!

Maaaagnif! After many years ago in vain trying tatting with a shuttle, I have just discovered needle tatting: this beauty of yours is going to be the "carrot" to aim for as I learn this wonderful art all over in an easier form! Thanx for letting us download it! :)

I downloaded it, but since my skill level isn't high enough for this project yet, I will save it for later.

lequita hicks said...

Hi, the butterfly is wonderful. I've only been tatting for almost 3 weeks now, however I needle tat. I was a little bit confused on the first S/R instructions.
I got most of it but I'll show what I'm talking about.

SR 7/9, Ch10 [throw off r 3+ (1st p) 3cl] 10+ (lj base of SR


Perhaps this isn't the right place to ask this question lol anyway.
I understand sr 7/9, ch 10. I get lost at the[] part. I love tatting it's very relaxing to me and I've been looking at a lot of your work and everything is amazing. I hope to hear from you regarding my question. thanks Le'Quita (lequita35@gmail.com)

One thing i have found that helps keep my projects from getting tangled and messed up is to get a small carabeners( i think i spelled that right) anyways thread your project onto them and they help
