Wonder Unde

Butterfly Shirt

Iron Wonder Under on the wrong side of the fabric.
Follow the manufacture's directions for ironing on the
Wonder Under.

From the fabric with the Wonder Under applied, cut a
piece 17 1/2" long by 1 1/4" wide. This will be the
collar piece.

Trace pattern pieces on the Wonder Under and cut out
all pieces. Remove Wonder Under paper backing from
all pieces. Position each piece on shirt with right
side of the fabric up. Iron patterns on as directed
for the Wonder Under.

Sew pieces on with a medium width tight zig zag

When you are done sewing the pieces on, you are ready
to start making the body and antenna's on the
butterflies and also the holes for the butterfly

For the butterfly house, you will need black thread
and the largest width on your machine with a tight zig zag.

For the bodies of the butterfly, you will need a large
tight zig zag and for the antenna's you will need a
very small tight zig zag stitch.

This pattern is a little bit harder to make but well
worth the effort. Happy Sewing!
