So, I've had this idea in my head for a long time.
To make a Bee Lady doll....
So I worked on a pattern (it took several tries, this was not the first)
But it was the last!
For several months I've been cutting and stitching and trying to figure out how to make her. And when it came down to it, after taking strips of black and yellow fabric, cutting them into strips, then stitching it all together, I couldn't bare to cut it!
So I made an attempt with muslin.
So glad I didn't use that material as the first few patterns and muslin attempts were not good!
The first face I made was a failed attempt. I had it all done except I didn't like the eyes. I was trying to take the eyes out and I ripped the fabric! Darn! So I started over.
And after I got her put together, I realized the mouth was too low....
so I had to re-do the mouth. And you can see where I took the old mouth out, but too bad!
Then I picked out some hair color and decided that it needed to be long, just like the Bee Lady. I stitched every hair on that head!
She had to have wings...and antenna
and it was cold out so she wanted a coat...
Do you see a resemblance?
She's getting there...
She was cold sitting up there on Valentine's Day, so I made some hand warmers and leg warmers for her...
Meet Honey Beatrice....Honey Bea for short!
