This is a “beginners level” punch needle pattern of a bumble bee patch on a canvas bag. (BAG NOT INCLUDED) Did you know there are over 25,000 species of bees on the planet, with about 4000 of them found right here in the U.S? This bee is not one of them. No, this is a stylized bee I plucked from my imagination because I was working with #5 perle cotton to make this, and that leaves little opportunity for fine detail, species-identifying work. LOL.
It’s a fun 3.5” x 4” pattern that can be worked up in an evening or two. What makes it special is that you can put this on a canvas bag or frame it up, and it would make a great gift that can be personalized. The weavers cloth is 10” x 10” and the design is hand-drawn. It also comes with instructions, suggestions, and 6 glass gold beads for the eyes because if you are like me, you will lose some of them. There is a separate design for the bee skep, and with it comes the felt patch needed to finish it off, as well as the chain to attach it to the bag. So besides the canvas bag and the threads, fusible fabric, and glue, you should be all set. Except...
You’ll also need a punch needle tool and frame, and I make suggestions on where to get the frame in the pattern packet.
Contact me with any questions about this pattern, or if you are interested in having this design transferred by hand to a 2.5’ x 3.5’ piece of monk’s cloth for a rug project.
