Of course, one of my favorite things about birthdays is the handmade items that give that little personal touch. This year I filled a goodie bag with essential girlie things like lotion, lip balm, silly bands, and chocolate. My homemade touch was butterfly hair ties!
I love how these sweet butterflies turned out, another great pattern from Susan B. Anderson. They knit up so fast and are so versatile. I chose to sew them onto a hair tie so the girls can have a ponytail with pizazz!
This is a perfect project to use up small amounts of leftover yarn. I love the frilly yarn that I used for these. I did trim the yarn down after I knit them. I love how they turned out!
