These crochet Butterflies will be perfect for handmade cards. You can use them for any clothes embellishment, scrapbooking, etc. Also, you can use them to decorate a hairpin, keychain or anything you can think about.
For my crochet Butterfly, I’ve used the same pattern as for the Crochet Mini Heart Bow. You just need to make antennae and you will have a Butterfly! This is a very quick and easy project.
