Bumble Bee Pattern

This week you guys get two patterns!  I haven't been posting for a while, so I decided that I would re-boot my blog by making two posts.

The first is this adorable bumble bee pattern.  This pattern is actually the first pattern I've ever written.  It's been sitting in my patterns folder forever, so I decided I should go ahead and share it!  It would be perfect for a nursery decoration, or as a rattle if you add a little shaker inside.
