Make Your Own Purl Bumble Bee Kit

This very sweet little bumble bee is designed by Simone Gooding. 

Made with 100% wool felt, our samples were made with different wing fabrics, you can choose between a pretty yellow floral Liberty Tana  Lawn or the 'patchwork' wings have two different 100% cotton fabrics, one wing is yellow with little pink roses and the other wing is a delicate spot. (see the photos for close ups) We stitched our bees by hand so the kit includes everything we used to make one bee. You can use your sewing machine if you prefer, you will still need the embroidery threads included to finishing your bumble bee.
