Here it is, a little gift embroidery design - use it for whatever you like. I've used it for this little round cushion for Gracie but if she was a baby it would have been stitched on a onesie, or a bib - probably both. Actually, in my haste I made the cushion quite small, so it will probably be for her dollies instead.
The colour choices are endless, not sure about the colours I used, I grabbed a handful for a road-trip and this is what I ended up with. I would love to see the colours others come up with - email me and I'll link your finished pieces and post your pictures here. The PDF file is easy to scale up or down for whatever size you like by choosing the percentage you want when you print it out.
Update: This pattern is now available with a voluntary donation and can be found here. Just leave a simple comment about how you might use this embroidery pattern and I'll email you this PDF pattern (be sure to leave your email address.) It need not be an original idea, it's just nice to know what might become of this little butterfly once it flutters out of my computer.
For tips on transferring designs to fabric, I still use the method of taping the pattern and fabric to the window and tracing the pattern onto the fabric. The Embroidery Flickr Group and Craftster both have ongoing discussions regarding various other transfer methods. Enjoy!
