Playing...with my new 'friends'...

Hi! As you can see...the speed of my new post is slowing down...Well, I kind of have this blog-'blocked' problem...hehe! I'm cracking my head to create something new for my 'craft for a cause' collection...just have the urge to add some new stuff into the 'cactus collection'.

I run through the 'Pinterest',...and even come across 'Pinspire'.... but nothing come to my mind.  At last, I switch my attention to make Mei Mei some tiny little puffy flowers to fix into her hairpins...during cutting the little circles of red fabric...something 'fly' into my mind....and I 'caught' this...

....and another one...

... and another...

they are just too cute and easy...
I just can't stop making them...

Now, for the 'tutorial'...

Make a small little red 'ball'
by cutting out a red fabric circle..( I get mine from a T-shirt!)
stitch around the edge as in the puffy flower tutorial..

And use your imagination...
Pull a black thread across the 'ball' and secure it.
Make another small black ball for the ladybug 'head'!
Use some black sequins for 'dots'!

Wish you have a fun crafty day!
