#117 Seadra (and Bumblebee pattern)

Hi there!

I’m so proud of my Seadra! I think she’s so cool and fierce!

Maybe her tail could have been a bit bigger but otherwise she looks really good to me.

What do you think about her?

Final assembly

  • Place the two 8mm safety eyes into the face of the bee.
  • Fill up the body of the bee with polyfill and sew it shut.
  • Fold the wings in half and sew across the middle line so you create 2 ‘wings’ attached to each other.
  • Sew the wings onto the top of the body by sewing the middle line to the body.

    That bumblebee is so cute! I wish I could crochet as I would give it a go, but I really can’t stand the feel of wool…
