Hi Arlene, This is great! I also think it would be fun to dye/paint your own wings. You would get just the right size and colors you want. These would also make great Fairy wings. Thank You Vicki

Hi Arlene, this is Cynthia from StitchMap. I can't wait until your app goes to Android. The stitch tutes are great. I was able to download the stitch files and the tips file, but when I click on the butterfly link, I get the basic stitches document. I'm anxious to try it.

Momto3inIL said...

Whenever I click on the 3D butterfly I get the Basic Stitches download instead. Would Love to be able to check the butterfly out. My daughter would love it!!

Elizabeth said...
