ButterflyJust finished this 3D free interpretation of the first pattern in “Schmetterlinge” by Ulrike Löhr.

Wingspan 2.5 inch or 8.5 cm. There was a pause when I connected the last wings and I had forgotten how I did the first wings. The body became much thicker with the last method. Next time I would just sling the last pairs of the wings around the gimp of the body and finish them as plaits for the legs. I misunderstood one of the grounds I tried in the front wings. As undoing is hazardous in wire I decided to continue irregular.

  1. Neat! I love those butterfly patterns and hope to eventually be able to do one in normal lace.

    I’m happy to discover a bobbin lace blog and hope to get to see more of your work.

  2. I’m sorry for my English. I lived in Belgium many years ago and tried to learn Dutch. I’m not very lingual. I studied kantklossen in dutch but have lost what I learned in language but not my lace-making. I love your dragonfly very much.
