Bumblebee..........




Here's the first Bumble bee Ive ever made......I have a few more nearly finished so hopefully will have a very small number to sell soon.
I really wanted to make them as often as the moths but they have been very very problematic!
Getting them to the stage has been really tricky and getting the right colours for the fur alone was very hard.
I really needed to see the project out and have come back to them again and again for weeks now.
Utterly adore bees so hopefully I can iron out problems with them in the future....Ill have some more details on them soon...

  7. The body/fur is incredible on your bumble. I'm am in awe of your work.

    I could imagine these looking very "Mr. Finch" with the wing veins sewn with taupe thread onto layer(s) of translucent parchment paper.
