Amigurumi Lady Bug Reviewed by Jody Widner on 2013-08-17 ****
Loved this pattern, but didn't love the eyes it called for. Once I'd changed that and added the split in the wings using an embroidery chain stitch it was perfect. My granddaughter has been driving her mom crazy over a little turtle I added a squeaky too in a Noah's ark blanket so I added one to the ladybug and I think she will be thrilled!
