Description: These cute little bowl fillers are as sweet as honey! What is a bowl filler? They are soft, stuffed little pillows that can be placed in a bowl or tray, or used as a pincushion. These five bee-themed little charmers will make you happy, not matter how you display them.

Debbie Busby’s book, Bowl Me Over, is chock full of bowl filler options. Once you make the bee pillows in class, you’ll want to make them all!
