5 Bee Inspired Sewing Projects

The theme for my Creative Sewing Challenge this month is ‘Flight of the Bumblebee’. Whilst I currently work on my own sewing project for this theme (a bee-inspired cafetiere cosy!) I thought I’d share some of the other lovely projects I’ve been researching for my Creative Sewing Challenge Community. If you are also interested in taking part, you are very welcome to sign up below. You’ll receive a creative prompt each month that you can respond to through your sewing in whatever way inspires you most. I’m finding its introducing me to lots of different sewing techniques, keeping my ideas fresh, and helping me to keep sewing a priority in these crazy busy days. Find out more here, or sign up below.

If embroidery is your thing, check out this sweet and simple Flying Bee Embroidery Pattern by Bees Knees Industries.

If patchwork is your thing, you might like this Free Hexy Bee Pattern by Amy Badskirt.

And for a bit more quilting inspiration, try this free Bumble Bee Pouch Pattern by Pat Sloan (so cute!)

And if you are looking for something super simple to sew with children, try this Felt Bumble Bee craft project from Mommy Made That.

Oh, and as a bonus idea, you might also like to try my newly published tutorial ‘How to make a cafetiere cosy‘ that I mentioned at the start – it was very much inspired by bees!

Don’t forget, if sourcing new sewing ideas is your thing, then sign up to my Creative Sewing Challenge for new inspiration delivered to your inbox every month.

And here is a busy bee pin for later – thanks for sharing!
