Butterfly Fairy Wings (Free Crochet Pattern & Video Tutorial)

by - May 08, 2020



Dear fellow crocheters,

I'd love to share my pattern for these pretty, little butterfly fairy wings!  They are so quickly and easily made with only two rounds of crocheting, and it's all done in one piece so there isn't any sewing involved.

You can pair it with a little fairy doll, such as with these lovely ladies below!  (Their patterns are in the works; I'll be linking them here once they're finished.)

 
Woodland Leaf Fairy (WIP) - coming June 2020


Summer Flower Fairy (WIP) - coming June 2020

You can also use these wings as appliques or embellishments on your yarny or crafty projects.  I think they'd look precious on a baby blanket or as an applique on a beanie or cardigan!
