Easy Simple Crochet Bumble BEE PATTERN
I saw the most adorable small CROCHET BEE, whilst I was out and about, it had been made and placed in a little clear bag with a Bee Kind message printed on a tag.
It also had the message
I am not lost but If I made you smile please take me home #randomactsofkindness
I was desperate to get home and crochet a little small fuzzy bumblebee of my own, For several reasons.
Over the years I have learned to LOVE Bees, I'm fascinated by beekeepers and the work they do, but also how our humble-bees are SO important to our planet, and encouraging them into the garden by planting bee-friendly plants and flowers. (some task in the North of Scotland)but I'm learning and finding new and wonderful plants that bees will find attractive and will survive our cold north winds.
Also, I love that the BEE is also the Symbol used in the Bee Kind message, in regards to mental health and online trolling.
