OCF – ONL 079 – Butterfly Lace Mandala

Choose the color of your fabric

Please note that this are not genuine fabric colors of any manufactuer. The colors have been hand-chosen by me, as they represent an array of colors which act as a decent, though emphasizing background for my intricate design. I strongly recommend to avoid any bold colored and/or mottled so-called "hand dyed" fabrics. Your months-long work on details and specialitles will be lost in any agitated background.

Now this one is really something for lovers of color, sparkle and detail ! Beautiful butterflies can be stitched over one for extreme detail and shading, or over two, for an easier task to the eyes. A sparkling lace is the background for the eyecatching insects which fly around the center pond, where stylisized flowers add color and shape.

You will use beautiful variegated silks, cotton floss, perles and braids, metallics, beads and crystals to make this embroidery a genuine piece of (your stitching) art !

Blackwork parts, Special Stitches and lovelyl backstitched elements will add to the overal lacy look of this design.

The mere design size is 293 x 293 stitches

  1. This really helps to see close up pictures of the actual stitching on a Chatelaine I am working on. Being able to go to this website to view it is so easy! Thank you Martina!

    1. Karen,
      just go to this pattern (search on top) and put it in your shopping cart – checkout with Paypal – and then you will
      receive an email with a link for download. Just remember not to download with a tablet or phone. Save – and stitch 🙂
      Kind regards, Martina

  2. Do you have a materials list for Butterfly Lace Mandala? I would like to price materials to see what my total cost would be. Thank you for all your beautiful work.

    1. So sorry, Cathy – I do not distribute separte info on my designs – but you can perhaps find such a list on my FB Support group or the Chatelaine Yuku Board already.

  3. Hello,as escuse me as its my first time buying a chart, i bought butterfly lace this morning ,please can you tell me where the convertion chart of the special stitches to DMC is.Thank you Miriam Delicata

  4. Hello Martina,

    I was wondering, what fabric was used in the pictures? I want to order the kit but I’m still trying to decide on the count of fabric to use.

    Thanks very much!

    1. Hello Maria, it is different. As there is very much “over one” in this piece, I would recomment a lower count, so a 28 count will be easier to see and stitch on. But this is dependant on your personal eye sight and expertise 🙂

  5. I am interested in ordering one of the mandala patterns, but it says when the PDF is sent NOT to download on or use a mobile tablet or cell device. I live in a bit on an internet dead zone in the country where my only connect is via a tablet with cell service. Why does this not work or is there another way to receive the pattern?

  6. Hi Kathy,

    we do not recommend downloading the file to a tablet, because this way it gets lost easier. If you wish to download it this way you can try, but I highly recommend saving it to another device immediately (for example by mailing it to yourself). If problems should occur please write to help@chatelaine.de

    I hope you enjoy your mandala 🙂
