by Susan Myers on February 27, 2012

Welcome to another Monday Etsy Madness, where I feature 12 fabulous Etsy artists, all surrounding a weekly theme.  This week our theme is bumble bees.  Yep, I know it’s a summer thing, but you wouldn’t believe the cuteness that I found when I did a search for bees!  Come see what I found!

If you can do a single crochet, increase, decrease, half-double crochet, and a slip stitch then you can make your very own mini thread crochet Bumble Bee Bear. The pattern also includes step by step assembly instructions and special Bee making tips. The pattern has a complete list of materials used to make your critter.  When completed Honey Bea will stand about 4 and 3/4 inches tall. This is a PDF pattern and will be emailed to you.   $10.20

Iris folding is a paper craft technique that involves folding strips of colored paper in such a way to form a design. The center of the design forms an iris — a shape reminiscent of the iris diaphragm of a camera lens. Iris folding originated in Holland, where early craft persons made their designs using patterned paper cut from the inside of envelopes. Set of 4 cards- $8.00
