Inside: 11 precious ladybug embroidery patterns for the days you’re looking for some cute little bugs to embroider.

Now, why would you ever be looking to make cute little bugs? Realistically, you wouldn’t, but ladybugs are the exception to all bug rules. In my mind, there’s no such thing as a cute bug, but again…There’s an exception to every rule. Every single one.

I am pretty fond of the simple lady bug, as it was a pet name my mother gave my sisters and I as we were growing up. She would be leading us around, or trying to round the three of us up and she would say, “let’s go ladybugs!” and that was how we knew it was time to go. Either get in the car and go somewhere or get in the car and go home. Either way, off we went.

She painted the bathroom walls in our shared bathroom with a ladybug stamp, so that we always had a trail of them crawling up our wall. Such a classic 90’s thing to do, such a perfect summary of the aesthetic then, but I’m quite fond of the bugs, the concept, and the memories.

As you begin to look for some of these embroidery patterns, there are so many out there it’s going to be tough to narrow it down. But here are 11 of my favorites– as if I could pick!

Meaning Of The Ladybug

As with everything in life and in nature, there’s a spiritual and significant meaning behind it. Even if you don’t buy into all of those myths and concepts, they can always serve as a reminder to welcome and manifest good things and good vibes into your life. They may be more of a good omen, but I definitely like to look at ladybugs as a reminder that good things are coming my way.

Symbols of positivity, prosperity, and so on are some of my favorites to embroider and have around the home, so that when I see them, I remember that I should breathe positivity and joy into my own life. It’s easy to get caught up in the day to day, but if I can embroider some of these good omens to have around my home to shake up my day, then I’m better for it.

Let’s look at some of the deeper meanings of the ladybug.

The meaning of the ladybug is very practical. It is derived from their natural role in the circle of life, which is to protect the plants from harmful bugs. So not only are they super cute, they’re protectors and keep the plants safe from harmful predators.

What a wonderful little bug!

That being said, the ladybug stands for protection and prosperity. This is a beautiful reminder to have around whether you embroider her on a wall hanging, a pillowcase to see every morning, the sleeve of your favorite jacket… Wherever you need a good reminder you can embroider a little red bug and call it a day.

They also stand for grace and general good luck. I pray daily for grace, and that I would handle myself elegantly as I walk through life and face challenges head on. If I can take a lesson and a reminder from a ladybug, I surely will do that. I will also accept the good luck of a ladybug landing on me, and will choose to remember that I am worthy of the good luck that the universe has for me.

Miraculous Ladybug

Maybe you’re here, not for the actual bug, but for the patterns for your children’s favorite character, Miraculous Ladybug. She’s the Hannah Montana of this generation– she lives a fabulous and wondrous double life as a superhero. The Miraculous Ladybug is a fun show with so many plot twists and turns, and while we don’t see her too much on the mainstream media, there are plenty of embroidery patterns that I want to share with you of her imagery.

Embroidering your kids’ favorite characters is such a fun project for you to be able to bring it to life, and a fun surprise for them to have something handmade by their mom of their TV hero. It’s a cute way to decorate their room or embellish their clothing, or maybe even backpacks for school.

Personalizing a kid’s gear is a great way to make them feel so special and like they have something so fun that no one else has, and we all know the best way to do so is for them to rep their favorite characters. This has been the move for a while now, and it will continue to be so.

So if your little one has a big love for Miraculous Ladybug, I’ve got a few of my favorite patterns for you to use for him or her here in this post.

Ladybugs are obviously very interwoven into my childhood. I can even remember vividly some of my precious denim overalls that had ladybugs embroidered into it. It felt so personal to us, my mother, my sisters, my family, that it always felt like ladybugs were our thing.

Either way, they’re a perfect little project, and I just know that you’re going to love them.
