See that cute little green caterpillar? She has a secret! When you turn her inside out she transforms into a sparkly purple butterfly!

This clever softie is fun to make and fun to play with. And that "Wow!" moment when you first turn a her inside out and see the transformation is priceless!

Check out my blog post to see an animation of the caterpillar/butterfly toy in action!

To make the caterpillar and butterfly you'll need some fleece (less than 1/4 yard of each color), cord or ribbon, and sparkly organza for the pretty wings (again, less than 1/4 yard). The eyes are white and black felt and the mouths are stitched with embroidery floss.

I recommend this pattern for those with some sewing experience. Although it is not difficult to sew, the construction is a bit more advanced than a simple softie. If you are looking to learn some new skills and are curious how inside out toys are made, this is the perfect pattern for you!
