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.
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!
They are really cute though and each has their own personality.
This one is our little honey bee. He has a sweet tooth just like my daughter.
This one likes to buzz around outside and enjoy the sun.
This one is the smart one. She’s a spelling 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.
