I would love to make something with a ladybug, has anyone ever seen or tried a pattern?

Fiber trends has a felted hedgehog... If there isn't a ladybug version (there might be) I'm sure you can adapt the pattern easily.

There's THIS (http://www.yarnsbydesign.com/detail.jsp?item=52529&category=fiber_trends) too, if you were looking for wearables...

needlebeetle.com. though I bought a pattern from there and was very disappointed... but this one looks better.

oops - yeah, you could knit it bigger and then shrink it.

I just found this Ladybug toy or pajama bag (http://www.craftown.com/knitpat4.htm) I wish there were a pic of the pajama bag, I can't picture it in my mind.

Here's the toy:

How cute is that?!? :heart:

Only I would like to try instead of pompoms for the ladybug's spots, to make lumps as in the Chenille Sweatshirt I'm making (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?p=376362).
