Since we discovered the Sweet N' Cute Creations tumblr, my kids have been requesting almost everything we see there. So I made them this little bee.


Careful, Bienchen, that's not a fellow bee!


Yes, that's a bee!

I must say the bee really is cute, but while I was working on it, I grew more and more aware that bees have six legs, not four, and that this was not a bee. I added the little fur cowl for more beeity, and then I still had to worry about proportions and posture of the thing, which took me a few trials to get right. Now that it's finished, we're all pretty happy with it.
And as our garden was very popular with the bees today, I took some pictures there. 

Before adding the fur, you can see all the bee's parts in this pic quite well.

This bee is fantastic. I love how you modified the pattern to make it more lifelike. This rocks.

Hehe, my poor kids don't get granted their requests very often with all the other projects piling up;) and the talent part in that case goes to Shannen from Sn'CC, but thanks!
