Crochet Heart Ladybug Appliqué
"A beautiful Heart Ladybug for all Ladybug lovers! Easy to make and perfect for any embellishment! Perfect for Valentine's Day! You can experiment with different size yarn and hooks to make your Ladybug in different sizes. Also feel free to use different materials for the Ladybug spots. For Ladybug spots I’ve used tiny round buttons, mini buttons in a shape of a heart, beads and crocheted small black circles. Pattern is for Ladybugs in two sizes – small and large."
