The most challenging thing about sharing this project in all honesty was photographing it!! I really enjoyed the process of making this mobile and Little Lady has put in a request for an owl mobile of her own - so watch this space!
Do you remember I showed you a glimpse of the creatures before they had their big smiles added? The inspiration came because apparently my lovely niece is 'a Busy Bee' and her mummy is making a bumble bee birthday cake to celebrate her first birthday. I had already chosen a little something as a gift but the nickname would not shift from my brain and it meant that I simply had to create something...
Laid down doesn't do the 'mobile effect' any justice but with a simple 'point and shoot' camera I had so many blurry photos this was the most successful method!!
I used this fantastic pattern together with some flower patterns from attic24. I picked buttons from my stash and embroidered basic features onto the bumble bees. I used an embroidery hoop I'd picked up in a charity shop months ago, covered any knots with washi tape and using basic chain stitches I sewed the flowers onto the hoop in order to assemble the mobile.
I'm really pleased with the outcome and as my first amigurumi crochet I was happy with how it all came together. Have you been a Busy Bee lately?!
