Boy that's a tough one! I wonder if you could use a popcorn stitch somehow, or do you know the half moon Stitch? Either one of these it would be hard to be multi colored, but you could do them in red, and take your black yarn after and embroider the spots and some little feet... Do you know how to filet crochet? It's pretty "hole-y" but you could create a lady bug (or 2 or 50) into a filet pattern, and maybe line the back with some flannel? hope this gets the creative juices flowing!!!

Please use the Help Desk for moderator questions.  I'm not currently available full-time.  Thanks!

I'd love to send you some hand spun for a poppet!

Here is ladybug baby hat -- it is a red hat with spots and antenna added later.  You could maybe do a similar thing with a blanket: http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/beths-ladybughat.html

Or you could make a graph and crochet it that way.  Use knit pro and plug in a ladybug from off the web somewhere.... http://www.microrevolt.org/knitPro.htm
