This is one of my oldest plush I’ve made, and it’s kind of embarrassing to look at it now… but here I go.
Stuffed stuff: Death Bee from Invader ZIM
Created and stuffed: April 2007
Death Bee appeared in the episode of “Attack of the Saucer Morons”, where a bee crashes into the Voot Cruiser operated by ZIM (an invader). Thus, ZIM decides to call it “Death Bee.”
But unlike its name, there was very happy music playing in the background when the Death Bee flies through the air towards the Voot Cruiser, so I used to call it Happy Bee. He does look very happy, doesn’t he?
I made this back then I was a fan of Invader ZIM. I used the same sphere pattern which I used for Piggy from Invader ZIM and used fleece.
I tried to sew the stripe pattern on the sphere before putting it together and stuffing it, but I just couldn’t work it out… so I cut black felt with a slight curve and glued it on.
The eyes are the same as Piggy and Mini-Moose. I cut fleece in a circle, loosely sewed around the edge and tighten the thread, like a drawstring bag. And I stuffed poly-fill inside, sewed the bottom part close, and glued a pupil on.
I wanted to make the wings more see-through, so I tried using a wire and white pantyhose but it didn’t look exactly like I wanted so I just ended up making it with two pieces of felt.
This was a very simple plush, made with two different sizes of spheres with a little bit of black felt and wings. This is probably a good project for a plush beginner.
