Crochet Ladybug Applique



This sweet little ladybug would make a great appliqué for a hat and a cute embellishment on a headband, but could also become a pin, magnet and more! Whatever you make with it, it is perfect for your love bug!

Crochet Ladybug Appliqué

Materials:
- Size F crochet hook
- Red worsted weight yarn
- Black worsted weight yarn
- 6 small black buttons for wings
- 2 small white buttons for eyes
- Tapestry needle

Abbreviations:
ch = chain
SC = single crochet
DC = double crochet

Ladybug should measure approximately 3x3 inches.

Wings (make 2):
Magic ring, 8 DC in magic ring. Do not join, ch 2, turn
Row 2: 2 DC in each stitch, pull magic ring tight. You should now have a half circle. (16 DC)
Sew buttons on wings.

Head:
Magic ring,8 DC in magic ring. Do not join, ch 1, turn.
Row 2: 2 SC in each stitch, pull magic ring tight. (16 SC)

  10. 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
