    Do bee fabrics "creep you out"? Or are you only afraid of real bees" (I know what my MIL would say - she HATES bees!)

    How about other bug fabrics?

    Should I even ask about .... snake fabrics?

    I'm actually making a bug quilt right now and these bees would be a perfect addition to it.

    Snakes might creep me out, but not everyone. I'm loving the bees! :)

    I hate real bugs-anything with more than 4 legs is just creepy, but the fabrics don't bother me at all. Of course, most are very colorful and cute, that helps. I don't like snake fabric....I mean, they don't have legs at all. Ewwww.

    I have a god daughter named Bea. And every quilt I have made for her has bee fabric in it somewhere.

    I have some really cute bug fabric. If they look cartoony it's fine. If it were realistic looking, DD would freak out. :)

    I have snakeskin print fabric that I've made clothing from.

    That fabric is cute. I don't mind the bug fabrics at all. Don't mind real bees either. We just have an agreement to leave each other alone. Sometimes bees actually land on me but I don't freak out, then they leave with no problems.

    As long as they are cute cartoon bugs and snakes, I like them, but I wouldn't make anything with real looking creatures. NO WAY!!

    I bought fabric similar to that for my father. He's a bee keeper and he sells honey with my sister. Bees to scare me but I'm SLOWLY getting over it.

    I've just ordered the honeybee fabric for the shop, and it will probably be a couple of weeks before it arrives. It's by Michael Miller. They had a pretty floral fabric that was part of the same group and I ordered that too. What are bees if they don't have flowers to pollinate? Anyway... it had the same shade of gold in it so I thought they would be good together.

    I love the bee fabric. It would make cute pillows for my reading area since I am Mrs. B. and have bee decorations all over my classroom.

    I have a nice variety of bug fabric. A friend even brought me a yard from Paducah a year or so ago to add to my collection. However, there will NEVER be a snake fabric in my collection! :shock:

    I am a retired life science teacher and I LOVE insect fabrics. Butterflies are my favorite but others are fine too. Snake fabric is okay but it would have to be for just the right quilt. I'll buy insect fabric just because I like it.

    Bees are cute but I guess I would have to have a open mind with my son who loves all things gross and slimy. So yes i would look at them!

    If they're cutesy, that's great. If it's some fabric of a realistic looking tarantula chowin' down... that's something else entirely.

    I love the bee fabrics and would also like for all of us to stop and think about all the good things do for us. The bee population is dwendling and causing concern about how our food supplies (vegetables) will be polinated. Long Live the BEE!!!
