Remember the bees? My daughter was the recipient of all of those so I wanted to make sure baby has one too. I continued on with the Nicey Jane fabrics left over from other nursery projects, plus a few other scraps I had.
I used vintage chenille for the wings again, crocheted the antenna, and added a little bow.
Baby won’t be playing with this for a bit since I used the plastic safety eyes instead of sewing on felt ones, but I had found an idea for using her as a decoration anyways.
Sandi Henderson had some pics of a quilt market she did and what stuck out to me was the bunnies in the picture frames. I decided to do that with the bee.
So I found a frame that had a thick ledge at a thrift store, then painted and distressed it some. It was a little shallow for the bee, so I did tie her on with some fishing line stuff so she can’t fall off. But she sits cute as can “bee” on the wall now
In honor of baby’s soon arrival, I’m putting the scrappy bee pattern on sale. It will be only $4 from now until Friday. So if you have been waiting to get it, now is a good time
And of course, here are some free softie patterns that I found and think are adorable. You can always make some of the girlie ones more boyish.
