Could use more specifics in pattern

So Cute!!! I generally crochet tight so used G+ hook -came out 3.25” tall :). Directions for the legs could use a short comment/description because first, they become a tiny “cone” (I thought I had made some mistake) and secondly, I was slightly puzzled about how to orient them on the base and stitch on. Finishing steps are slightly incomplete for a “beginner” or even advanced beginner in my opinion. It doesn’t tell you to sew the spots on the body before attaching the base (actually it doesn’t even tell you to sew on spots)- and I thought the head should be sewed on the base, before stuffing. Finally, how would you suggest we make the antennae????? How do we make them “stand up”?
Thanks for a cute project though.

Hi DAlt - thanks for your feedback! The antennae will stand up straight if they're around 1' tall, and the ladybug is not in motion (no guarantees that they'll be standing after being played with!). You could also try stiffening them with a mix of white school glue & water, or another stiffening product, but be careful not to put too much on and have it drip on the rest of the ladybug.
