Introduction: Amigurmi Ladybug and Flowers

Picture of Amigurmi Ladybug and Flowers

This is my first pattern so I hope it turns out well. I knew I wanted to do a ladybug and later decided to add some flowers. Its a fun craft and could also be a decoration. You can also just use the flowers for something you like. This is was made from various inspirations I found online and my imagination. Enjoy ;)!!
