I designed this little Bumblebee for my latest bear pattern called, "Bee Mine Teddy Bear" You can pick up the bear pattern here. Bee is about 1.5 inches long.
Scroll down this page to view the Bumblebee pattern. There is a green print
friendly button at the bottom of all my patterns. I hope you enjoy!
Warning: This Bumblebee is not meant for small children due to chocking hazard.

Weave in and out of the FLO of the remaining stitches then pull yarn tail to close the gap.

sl st first st. Wing number one is done, do not break free
chain 3 then work 6st into the 2nd chain from the hook. Sl st the first st and f/o.
Weave yarn tail to center of both wings so that the yarn tail is hanging out the bottom just like the first yarn tail. Fold wings together and bring the yarn needle through the bottom edge of both wings then knot off and pull tight.
You can sew the yarn tails into the bee or do it the following way which I find much simpler...
Bring both yarn tails through the middle of the bee and out through the same stitch hole. Pull the wings up and add a dot of glue under the wings. Pull the yarns tails to suck the wings back down to the body. Knot off the yarn tails then cut them up short and push the knot into the body to hide it.
