The bumble bee before the sequins. Here again I used 8s on the undersides and 10s on the top side so the covering of the bee went fairly fast. Those dinky legs took all afternoon. You might be relieved to know that when the sequins are sewed on the wings, they stand up and back in the proper position. Here it looks like a bee hunter out to grab his dinner.
It is now getting interesting to see how many animals I can put sequins on before people start gagging. I still consider the dachshund but the fabric is so tough it makes my hands ache and my fingers go numb with the pressure I need to get the needle through. I may have to relearn how to use a thimble! Or pick another animal.
