The Scrappy Bee Pattern Giveaway!!!! -CLOSED-

The Scrappy Bee Pattern

I did it! I made my lazy self finish this one up (now to finish the other ones….). This is a pattern for a softie I created a few years ago actually. I made them for a craft show. The pink one found a home, but the blue one did not and was sitting in my closet. A few weeks ago, while in the closet I found him and my daughter was drawn to him like a magnet to the fridge. He became her new cuddly.

Bee Hugs!

After seeing her intense love for the bee, I knew I had to create a pattern so I could make her more (the original ones were free styled). Thus The Scrappy Bee Pattern came into existence. Now you can make one too!

These are the three I made with the pattern and guess what? My daughter immediately fell in love with them also! They sleep in her bed every nap and bed time. She takes them to the store. She takes them to the zoo. Everywhere!

She loves them!

They are really cute though and each has their own personality.

Honey Bee

This one is our little honey bee. He has a sweet tooth just like my daughter.

Sunny Bee

This one likes to buzz around outside and enjoy the sun.

Spelling Bee

This one is the smart one. She’s a spelling bee.

Pretty Bee

And lastly, this little pretty bee likes to find her way into my makeup.

Wonder what type of personality the ones you might make will have? Check out the ones my pattern testers did:

About the pattern:
It comes in a PDF format that is emailed. It is full of pictures to go along with the instructions for those who are visual learners :). The pattern and instructions print out on regular sized printer paper scaled and ready to go. It includes a few different ways to make the antennae (crocheted, felt, etc.). The idea is to use scraps of your fabric to create the body and the arms, legs, wings, and head use small pieces of fabric as well. When finished the bee is 19 inches from top of it’s head to the bottom of the legs.

    What a gorgeous pattern. And I love their size. Good hugging size for the littlies and a good size to carry around.

    I have been looking fore a softie like this that I could make for my cousins’ kids – due to some ridiculous dispute we lost contact with that whole side of the family for 7 years and in the meantime 5 kids were born. I met them all for the first time a month ago – the oldest is 11 and the youngest is 18 months and I think this busy (or buzzy) bee would be perfect for all of them.

  12. says

    I love it. This would make a great semi-beginner project for me. I’ve never made sewing toys for my boys – just crochet so I love the idea of combining the two!

    Hi! These are so cute, I just adore them. I am NOT crafty whatsoever, I don’t even know how to use a sewing machine :) Are these available for purchase? I work for a doggy daycare, and I have a dog there that I just love named Honey, that we call her Honey Bee..her mom would just love it!

    “Are these available for purchase?”

    Thank you for your interest, but my daughter has already claimed these four, but I am always open to doing custom orders. Just email if you are interested in that.
