Hi, We just started a Ladybug Sewing School here in Dallas area and I thought I would share our little stuffie mascot.
Need: 2 different color felt fabrics Classic colors: red/black Pastel colors: pink/blue Matching embroidery thread Pattern pieces -- to make the Ladybug Pattern -- you can just use a round cup as a pattern for it
Cut 1 Red round piece (for front) and 1 black round piece (for back) Make 4 spots (2 for each side) out of contrasting fabric. (Black Spots for the red one and blue spots for the pink one)
Middle body piece--cut one middle body section
Cut 2 head pieces (half moon shape) (see upload). Cut 6 scarp pieces for legs (do not have to be even) or you may use ribbon for this. (contrast color).
Starting with the red/pink piece--place the middle body part to ladybug and sew it down the middle (leaving a little bit hanging out at bottom is fine).
Step Two--sew the ladybug spots on her (black or blue)
Step Three--sew the head together (black or blue)
Step Four--take the scrap pieces or ribbon for the legs and baste down to back piece of fabric or use some sort of fabric glue to hold it in place before sewing.
Step Five--place front and back pieces together with legs sticking out and whip stitch around it make sure to leave legs hanging out.
Step Six--leave bottom section open for stuffing.
Step Seven--Stuff your stuffie.
Step Eight--sew up opening.
Step Nine--add optional pin to back--either glue it or sew it on.
