Crochet a small BEE FREE PATTERN (EASY)

 Easy Simple Crochet Bumble BEE PATTERN 

I saw the most adorable small CROCHET BEE, 

whilst I was out and about and  it had been made and 

placed in a little clear bag with a Bee Kind message 

printed on a tag. 

crochet bee- bumblebee crochet pattern free


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 am fascinated by beekeepers and the work they do.

But also how our bumblebees are SO important to our planet. 

And how easily we can help save the bees by 

encouraging them into the garden by planting

 bee-friendly plants and flowers.

Some task in the North of Scotland! Where I live 

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.

Newborn Baby Crochet Hat Pattern Perfect Crochet Hat for Donating to Hospitals

This newborn crochet hat is perfect for babies just coming out of the hospital or making a few baby hats in varying colors and donating them to your local hospital.  Newborn Babies can lose heat really quickly straight after birth so they require warm hats immediately to help keep them warm and cozy.  If they lose heat too quickly after being born they can become quite unwell.  Please check with your local maternity unit on what colors they may need, as some units run a traffic light system and are a fantastic visual aid for the midwives to easily identify babies that may need a little more help and attention in the first few hours.  RED -   red hats are used for babies who are more at risk and require more regular observations.  AMBER hats - require just a little bit more attention.  GREEN Hats - lower risk babies and only require routine observations as they are healthy and a good weight.  (Please check with the labor Delivery suite midwives if donations are being taken at this tim
