What a little, itty-bitty cutie, baby ladybug! I get lots of requests for original ideas for toddler costumes, and I think this one is tops in my book!

If you're not a real seamstress (me either!) just get a few supplies to complete the look. A black sweatshirt, knit hat, black fuzzy socks, some black pipe cleaners, and felt. Swing by the craft store and pick up some fairy wings and attach to a red toddler fleece. Sew pipe cleaners to the hat and sew on black felt "spots".

Adjust your pattern accordingly (if you want to attach the black socks or not) or just by copy the design from the picture.

Everyone will think you're one crafty mama!
