Toy Butterfly Sewing Pattern Directions:
- Cut out 4 butterfly wing pieces (two facing each direction if you use fabric with an obvious right and wrong side).
- Cut out 2 body pieces.
- Cut out 2 antennae, 2 eyes, and a mouth from scraps of fabric.
- Line up 2 pieces of the wings, wrong sides together, and pin in place. Use 3 strands of matching embroidery floss and stitch the edge of the wings together with a basic running stitch. Leave a 1 inch hole to stuff the wing with fiber fill. Once filled, sew the hole closed. Repeat for the second wing.
- Arrange the face pieces as you like on the top of a body piece. Sew in place with 3 strands of matching embroidery floss.
- Line up the two body pieces, wrong sides together. Pin the wings in place on either side of the body with the inside wing edges tucked between the body pieces. Pin in place. Pin the antennae in place at the top of the head, between the two body pieces.
- Starting below a wing, use a running stitch and 3 strands of embroidery floss to sew the body pieces together. Be sure to sew the wings and antennae in place as you go around the body. Leave a 1 inch hole at the bottom of the butterfly body. Stuff with fiber fill then sew the hole closed.
