Attaching butterfly body to wing s: Position butterfly body on top of wing s. Using a tapestry needle, or
hook, pull the ends from the body through to the back of the butterfly [Figure 4] . Do this at both ends
of the ch -6 body. For the yarn tails at the bottom/base of the butterfly, knot these ends together at the
back of the butterfly then weave in ends. For the yarn tails at the top/head of the butterfly, bring those
ends back to the front of the butterfly and knot the yarn tails together, then cut the ends leaving a bit of
length for antennae [Figures 5 & 6] .
