been playing again – having fun with the Across-the-Pond ‘ladybug’ theme and
look what I’ve come up with – the Patchsmith’s Ladybug Pincushion.
its ribbon antennae .....
.... all the way down to its quilted tummy ......
..... this fun project is
not only quick and easy to make, it is so darn cute.
I have made three and the gingham one is my favourite (of course!).
But the best bit about this pattern - it is FREE. Click on the Patchsmith’s Ladybug Pincushion pattern (or any of the photos above) and away you go.
Hello Amanda! What a great little project! Such cute ladybirds! :) xReplyDelete
Thank you - it is an easy make and very, very useful.Delete
Just thinking that this would make a great baby toy with something squeaky inside or a rattle.ReplyDelete
My daughter liked labels as a youngster and would've liked the ribbon legs. However, you would need to make sure the ribbon was attached securely and also use child-friendly stuffing and organic cotton. But as a pincushion there is no need for such things - scraps will work just fine.Delete
Your little ladybugs are beyond cute!!ReplyDelete
Simply clever and adorable! I love their gingham ribbon legs and antennae! Thanks so much for sharing the free pattern!
You're welcome Susie. It is a little bit of fun for the sewing room.Delete

Thank you Vera. It is also a great pincushion for the sewing table as it lies relatively flat on its quilted tummy.Delete
