Crewel Embroidery Butterflies

I got given a crewel butterflies kit for Christmas, and managed to lose it for 6 months and have only just found it!  So as i’ve finally found it again i’m going to start it now.  I thought it would be good to try because it’s different to cross stitch, but potentially it would be easier to make my own desings in crewel.

Here are some pictures of what it’s going to look like when it’s finished (hopefully) and the fabric and threads.  The design is printed onto the fabric and there is a pattern that goes with it to tell you which bits are which colour.  The kit is made by Dimensions.

    Pretty! At first I thought it was needlepoint, but when I looked at the picture, I realized it is not. But it is pretty anyway.
