Crochet/German Fasching (Carnival)

I asked our little one what she wanted to be in Fasching and she told me a ladybug. No idea where she had the idea from, but my brain starting searching for ideas    right away. FullSizeRender-3 FullSizeRender-5

I came up with this red cape with black dots, as well as the black/red tutu with a red ribbon around it. Hope she likes it as much as I do. I will add the pattern soon.FullSizeRender-2
