Make this Ladybugs Cross Stitch!

These ladybugs on the bright yellow sunflower make an irresistible combination. While I originally designed this pattern to be used on a cross stitch baby quilt or baby afghan, it is one of those images that can be appreciated by children and adults alike.

Some Ideas

  • Using waste canvas, you can cross stitch this heart onto baby's clothes, then embroider the individual ladybugs on each point of your collar.
  • Cross stitch washcloths and hand towels with "Ladybug" and "Inchworm." They will remind your toddler to wash and dry hands her hands, leaving the "bugs" behind.
