Тhis is our yarn ladybug. Tie a martenitsa to the little soft toy and it will make a wonderful gift for any child.

Wrap red yarn around a piece of cardboard or a little book. Wrap a bit of black at the end. Wind the black one or two times over the red one, close to the black end. After you make the pom-pom, try to arrange the black yarn into a line on the back. Make a smaller black pom-pom. Tie the two pom-poms together. Knit a string for the ladybug’s antennae. Sew two beads to make the eyes.

When you are cutting the pom-poms.  ruffle the yarn from time to time to make trimming easier.
