“Such bees! Bilbo had never seen anything like them.

  2. Keep it up my friend. Amazing work. How in the world do you manage those transparent wings?

    1. The wings are made from an old chiffon-like blouse, therefore the transparency.
      Once I cut the shape, I pleated and ironed the fabric to create the veins.🤗
