Two of my teammates at work had babies this year! I already posted the elephant I gave to the second one, but here’s the butterfly I just finished for the one who was actually born earlier. I had to reorder some of the yarn, and then there were just so many tiny little pieces to deal with, it ended up taking me a lot more time than the elephant. But it’s finally done!
It’s made from a lalylala pattern. The hat comes off, as does the “sweater” that the wings attach to, so you can swap out parts from her other bug patterns to make different ones, or just have fun by taking off the wings and calling it a caterpillar. I might sew the hat down before I send it though; I haven’t decided yet if it’s safe for a baby. It doesn’t come off unless you pull it correctly, and it’s not TINY, so I think it’s probably safe, but I should probably ask the parents first.
Anyway, here are a couple more photos!
