I've got a brand new pattern in my shop today! I'd like to introduce you to Benji the Bumblebee.
I designed this guy in the middle of a very long, cold New England winter. His bright smiling face cheered me up while we waited for green grass and longer days. I made Benji for Stitch Craft Create magazine and he was all ready for publication in the Summer 2013 issue, the very next one to hit newsstands, when the magazine folded. So sad!
But nobody can keep Mr. Benji down. I had planned to put him in my shop right after his magazine debut, so he's just as happy to land there a few weeks early. I love this softie and I hope you will, too.
Okay, make a bee-line to your fabric stash, grab the pattern, and sew your own Benji the Bumblebee!
