  • 1. Cut out pieces from pattern.
  • 2. Whip stitch the body pieces together.
  • 3. Leave a space open to stuff the ladybug; stuff, then whipstitch closed.
  • 4. Stitch the spots onto the red wings.
  • 5. Whipstitch the wings to the ladybug.
  • 6. Stitch on the antennae.
  • 7. Sew black pupils onto the eyes by using a running stitch. Add a little white “x” for a little sparkle in the eye. You can add a wink to one of the eyes by using a backstitch.

Oh, my goodness! How cute are these? I know a little ladybug girl who would LOVE these, and an older girlie who would probably like making them for her just as much :-)

Thanks for the tutorial!
