Bumblebee - Component - Tutorial - Fundraiser


This is a fundraiser-listing for a full-color 10-page PDF which will show you step by step how to make the Bumblebee.  You will receive an e-mail with a link to the download of the tutorial - you will neither receive the Bumblebee pictured above, nor the photo of the bee which served as example. There are no instructions regarding the addition of findings, since it is likely that it will be used in a beaded floral composition of your choice. 

The bee measures 20 mm x 10mm, which is approximately the same size as those visiting the flowers on my balcony. Like the real bee, it has two pairs of wings, one smaller than the other. The longer wings measure 12mm x 5mm.

All parts are based on my “From Petal to Pod” method to make 3D shapes, with slight modifications. https://www.facebook.com/groups/PetalToPod/ (please answer the questions when asking to join).

The instructions are in English with very clear, detailed, full-color illustrations and pictures, easy to understand.
