Crochet Butterfly Applique Free Crochet Pattern Review

Pretty Crochet Butterfly Appliques

A while ago I received from Wholeport some beautiful embroidery floss samples. There are such lovely colors! I thought i will use them to make crochet appliques and jewelry accessories!

Today I made 4 pretty crochet butterflies using the  Free Crochet Pattern Sweet Butterfly by Liliheart Designs found via Ravelry.

Materials used: embroidery floss, crochet hook size 1.5 mm and sewing needle.

I really liked the pattern, very nice, easy and quick! Only 3 rows to work! 

The pattern is written using one single color, but I used 2 colors for each butterfly, changing to second color this way: at the end of the second row, I worked the last dc of the row till half; having 2 loops on hook, I joined the second color and finished the last stitch with the new color and continued working the last row with the second color. 
My butterflies are 4 cm x 5 cm big, perfect to use them as applique!  I sewn one of the butterflies on my little girl's rainbow dress. I thinks it gives the dress an extra sweetness factor! :) What do you think?

Happy Crochet!
