Their construction couldn’t be any easier– use up your fleece fabric scraps {they are 5″ X 7″ in size}, grab some ribbon for the wings and antenna, and some embroidery floss.

If you have a little someone who is just learning how to sew, this would be a great pattern to learn on!

Materials Needed:

Use what scraps you have to customize your bug.  You can make monsters, butterflies…whatever you think of- starting with the basic shape and idea.  Let your fabric inspire your bug!

Put little rattles inside, or a bell.  So when they get shaken they make a little noise.

They are ready to go on any kind of adventure too!

    Love the ribbon bug pattern. My grandkids want to learn to sew. Easy patterns that they can see with directions so easy for them to follow is what I have been looking for. They will be making these for gifts to give their friends. Thank you
