      That is the cutest ladybug ever. I wish this had been around when my daughter was a baby, I made her so many ladybug themed items. This would have been a great addition. I may try one anyhow. Thanks for sharing this great creation!

      So sorry I didn't see this sooner. Okay so, you take the closed end of the white rod and place that in the hole of the red ball and attach.

      Same for the black rod to white ball, and red rod to black ball.

      Now take the open end of the white Rod and attach it to the black ball, right next to the red rod. Now attach open end of red rod to the white ball right next to the black rod. Then attach the black rod to the red ball right next to the white rod, forming a triangle.

      My daughter, Jennifer Hunley loved lady bugs so much she had one tatooed on her Big toe. She was excited about being an Aunt again but passed away prior to Swayze's birth. Although it has been more than 20 years since I have followed a pattern, I am going to attempt to make this set in memory of her. I Love you sweet Jennie, R.I.P.
