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.
