Crochet Ladybug Applique

    What a kind lady you are,giving us all these free patterns.Iam in the process of making the ladybird,but as a brooch with embroidery thread,it will work out to about 2ins long,and instead of the buttons,with a paper hole puncher,I used black glossy card,and I will glue them on.Once again thank you so much for the patterns
