STASH-BUSTING IN 2021 #19

Buzz buzz buzz busy little bee 🐝

I wonder what they are plotting?

I’m still dabbling with crochet and have been trying out amigurumi. I have made these little bees using a pattern from Hannah Cooper. Amigurumi creatures are fun and very sweet but they are quite a faff. A lot of fiddling around for hours to produce a tiny creatureπŸ€”

They haven’t even made a big dent in my stash🐝🐝🐝. However, they have taken up all my focus so great little mindfulness activity πŸ‘

I did try posing them in my honeysuckle but the yellow one had a bit of a nose dive! Anyway back to my dabbling. Hope everyone has a lovely weekend.

Woolly wishes,

Jane β™‘β™‘β™‘

    1. Thank you and yes I did. Part of the fun is imagining how I will picture my finished bits and pieces. The photos never look like they do in my head, the yellow bee is a prime example 🐝

  1. Aww they are adorable!! I totally hear you on the fiddlyness, though – I always marvel at the teeny tiny creatures you see on ravelry or other social media, but MAN! I don’t think I could work something hat small and detailed without wanting to set in on fire multiple times.

  2. Aw, they’re cute!
    Yeah, amigurumi isn’t great for stash busting because it usually uses so little, and it is time consuming and a bit of a pain sewing all the bits together but the end results are usually so cute and they make for great gifts – I love seeing the reactions people have to the amigurumi I give them.

    1. Thank you. Stash is still huge. N asked if he could give one to his granddaughter, I feel a bit mean but I’ve said no. All those legs and little bits must be a choking risk πŸ˜’ She can have one when she’s older!

      1. Yeah, some patterns are too suitable for little ones. For amigurumi that works great as gifts like that, I recommend the Edwards Menagerie book, they’re supper cute and a little bit less of a choking risk.
