    My DDIL's sister had twin little girls and did their entire room in the bee theme. She and DS asked me to make her a quilt for each little baby girl. My DS found this material, so I added some applique bee's and a hive to the top. I forgot to put the attenna's on the little bee.. poor little fella..so I have to add them yet.. and suggestions or ideas??

    Hi,
    Bee-utiful !!! I wish it was mine.... What about embroidering them on, small enough stitches shouldn't catch - just a thought!

    Love it!! For the antenaes, I would just find some black embroidery floss and stitch them in. She is going to be thrilled with this!!

    Cheers!

    I'd probably do a blanket stitch in black around the bee applique to make it stand out more, so would probably do the hive as well. nice work.

    Maybe fuse some of the bees printed in the fabric flying across the hive.

    It is awefully cute.

    or could the bee have flowers to get nectar from

    No matter if you don't do anything it is already cute
