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!

The attention to detail in the bee is wonderful. It is fun but very proper with the perfect bow. Love it! Smiley
