I have a friend at work that is CrAzY about Yeti.
She is expecting a baby and she is decorating the nursery in a Yeti theme.
I remembered a pattern for Bumble from the Rudolph tv show and went on the hunt for it.
It is at a site called Fandom In Stitches.
If you are looking for something that has a fan base you may want to look there first.
Disney? Harry Potter? Comics and super heros? They have all of that plus more!
I thought that was where I had seen Bumble and I was right!
It is under the Holiday Favorites tab.
OK so paper piecing it is. It was relatively easy except for two things.
1- The larger bottom section printed off the paper (not scaled of course).
I printed it out smaller and measured the differences and
translated it to my pattern which was successful.
2-The pattern had all the pieces colored, which was so helpful.
All except for the background pieces! UGH.
I had to try to figure out what colors went where and
did no small amount of ripping out and replacing until I got it correct.
Of course inspector Autumn was right on "helping me"
Take a look at this eye section!
Here is Mrs Bumble all finished and trimmed up.
My friend is having a little girl so the Bumble had to be in pink of course!
Still considering adding a bow too.
I wanted to make this a pillow cover so I had to add to the background.
I would have made it larger but that is all the pink PB fabric I own right there.
I went ahead and made a quick envelope back for it and it is all finished!
I just need to purchase a pillow form to go inside and it will be ready to gift
Well, unless I decide it needs a bow, which I would do first.
What do you think?
Bow or no bow?
What did you work on over the weekend?
