Freebie Friday Quilled School Bus Pattern


Free Quilled School Bus Pattern
Free Quilled School Bus Pattern

This project is a throwback to a pattern I have posted in the past, but it is perfect for the beginning of the school year.  I love this sweet school bus because he really has a personality.  Can't you see the face within the coils?

Do you have children going to school, or do you have pictures from the first day of school that screaming at you to please put them in your scrapbook? Well, here is the perfect embellishment for you!

This is my Safety First School Bus pattern - as always, I try to keep these patterns simple. They use only the basic shapes so even beginners can create them.

Bus Body (this is the base of the project and the most work comes from this step)

  • 30 Yellow (3 in, 7.6 cm) Loose Coil, cut to 1/16 inch, .15 cm wide
  • 6 Yellow (6 in, 15.2 cm) Loose Coil, cut to 1/16 inch, .15 cm wide
  • 1 Yellow (3 in, 7.6 cm) Teardrop (for Front Bumper), cut to 1/16 inch, .15 cm wide

The school bus is one of my favorites.. I do like whimsical, and he captures that... maybe I should add some wiggly eyes next time?
