I thought I would use my Decor Accents small-gauge loom to make the "body" of the bag. I went ahead and crocheted the ladybugs... I decided to make three ladybugs to represent my cousin and her two children. I will applique the ladybugs to the bag with surface crochet. I haven't decided how I want to do the spots yet... maybe buttons?
The yarn is the Hobby Lobby brand acrylic, "I Love This Yarn". I chose this yarn for ease of care, which I feel is important for a working mother with two young toddlers.
So here is the start of this project. I will post pictures as it progresses... I thought she might enjoy watching its development.
L, this is your bag...
