Hellooo! I had seen some really cool ribbon rosettes online, so I thought I'd try my hand at making one! I made a bee ribbon, just in time for Sherlock Holmes's birthday!  Cheesy After retiring from being a detective, Holmes started beekeeping instead... hopefully, this is only the first of many weird little Holmes references that I can wear all at once.





I tried some super-novicey stumpwork... I wasn't able to find too many tutorials online, so I sort of made it up as I went along. Thanks for having a look!

Looks like you won a prize!  As you should, for cuteness and nice work...the bee looks fabulous with the honeycomb ribbon!

Love it! It is crazy how much you can do with ribbons! I have been crafting with ribbon for awhile now, and i'm still amazed at the different and unique items that are made.
