There are so many dull and rainy days in the UK so my compact umbrella is my must have item in my handbag. I have decided to crochet a fancy umbrella case to brighten up these days. So, please welcome my new crochet project - Ladybird Umbrella Case. I really love this beautiful accessory. It makes me smile every time I find it in my handbag. It also a great toy for my little daughter. She really loves playing with it during our short walks around.
It was quick and fancy project. I used sport/5-ply cotton yarn from Lana Grossa and 3.0 mm hook. I used a black zipper as fastener on the back and put small amount of toy filler inside of each leg.
I also love this funny face. I crocheted the white part of eyes and used a tiny buttons for pupils. I embroidered eyelashes and mouth with a red thread.
