ladybug hair clip

Hi crochet people! I thought this pattern is worth sharing.
Ladybug hair clip using alligator pin. This is a simple and easy gift for a little girl.
To start you need:
White, black and red yarns  (I have used 3 ply yarn)
Hook  E 3.75mm
Tapestry needle
Red felt
Alligator clip/pin
Glue gun and glue of course

Okay let’s begin:
Round # 1  with red ,Slipknot.  Chain 3 then join to form a ring.
Round #2 chain 3 (count as the beginning  TR) Triple crochet into the ring 19X then join to the beginning chain 3. Fasten off. You should have 20 treble crochet .
Round#4. With black. Slipknot and join in any stitch you like. Chain 1 half double crochet in the next stitch. 6 treble crochet on the next stitch, half double crochet to the next stitch, single crochet to the next . fasten off but leave about 1 and half inch for sewing.
For  the last round I added photos because I think it is the best way to explain. It should be like this at the end of the round 4. Don't worry about the whole in the middle the next photo will show you how to cover it.

 I inserted the needle to the middle of 6 treble crochet from round 4. Shown in the photo above.

 Then inserted the needle to the red as shown in the photo. Then pull and tag a little bit.

 For the ladybug spots I inserted the needle and pull 3 times. like doing embroidery. ( do not pull too much)

 Cut the felt and shape it to your ladybug. Then to make the eyes. take the white yarn and do what you did for the spots.

For the last part, glue the alligator pin to the felt and glue the felt to the back of your lady bug. TADA!
I wish I have a model for this. Apology for the grammar. I hope my instruction is clear enough for you. any question about this, just ask me and  I will try to explain as long as I can. have a nice day and I hope this post is worth trying.
