I have always liked bees, and things with a bee motif, and I thought I would try making some.
While I was at it I made some ladybirds as well.
These bees aren't stripy, but they are black and yellow.
They are basically just covered buttons with beads and muslin wings attached. They were easy to make, but these are half inch buttons and they were FIDDLY to do.
The good thing about them being buttons is that they would be easy to attach to something just by being sewn on as a button. I'm not sure what I'll put them on, but I can think of some possibilities. Maybe one could go on a pincushion or a bag of some kind.
I'm pleased with the way they turned out and I think they are really fun.
