little bumblebee: tutorial by onifrogbox little bumblebee: tutorial by onifrogbox
The "little bumblebee" tutorial is FINALLY finished!!! Again, credit goes to :iconchocolate-stars: for the design of the bumblebee.

I really apologize for how long it took to put this together, but personally I blame school >< And homework!

+ You can download the pattern here: [link]

Megaupload Mirror: [link]
{Please let me know if these stop working!}

It looks really big, but when you print it out, it should be just right.

Notes about the tutorial:

+ The bee I photographed for the tutorial is smaller than the one that you'll be making if you use the pattern (full size). It's about half the size, but the steps are exactly the same! (I was just lazy with the sewing).

+ If you're wondering why for the ribbon-installation part, the back stripe has already been sewn on...I forgot about the ribbon and had to go back and do it XD

+ The main stitches I used were the overcast stitch ([link]) and the blanket stitch ([link]). If I didn't say which to use, it's most likely the overcast.

+ There are many ways you can do the mouth, it'd probably be more secure if you embroidered it, or used little stitches, but I wanted a more rounded shape, so I "cheated" a little XD

+ I kind of rushed the steps for the eyes and the mouth, so if you have any questions, please let me know!!

+ Sorry for the inconsistent colours and the different backgrounds - I was working all over the house.

Good luck and please show me if you make a little bumblebee of your very own!

O___O

I just want to extend a huge, heartfelt THANKS to `feetpeet and `bleedsopretty for the DD!! I'm totally shocked and overwhelmed - and thanks to everybody who faved and left comments for me since yesterday, it's going to take me ages to go through everything!! :hug: :hug: :heart: :heart:

little bumblebee: tutorial by ~onifrogbox is one of the most impressive AC tutorials I have seen in a while, it goes through each step with great guidelines and pictures and should be easy for all to follow. ( Suggested by feetpeet and Featured by bleedsopretty )

I got the eyes from my mum's bead collection..so sadly I don't know where they originally came from -_- They are really ordinary though, so I'm pretty sure any bead shop would carry them!
