Ladybug Brooch and Gift Bag

Love Bug and Gift Bag
My oldest daughter really like ladybugs. I thought a ladybug brooch would make a great Valentine's Day present for her. I went through four different patterns before I decided on the second pattern I had designed. The black fabric seemed to have a mind of its own. It definitely stretched some. Oh well, next time I rework the pattern I will have to deal with that. I also made a small gift bag to put it in. My youngest daughter commented that the weeds in the backyard made a great backdrop for the photo. Nice to know they're good for something.

Very cute ladybug brooch! I happen to like Oxalis - when I'm not the one trying to keep them from overrunning everything, that is. :0)

I love buying a box of ladybugs ostensibly for the garden and releasing them into the air just for fun!
