Mini Bee Plushie

Updated: Jun 22

Happy Free Pattern Friday, friends! It's been a while! I lost track of time a little bit after we had an unexpected move and now it's been a few months! But worry not, I did make some patterns while I was away! For this Friday I wanted to share with you all my mini bee pattern! It's so fun and small and you can turn it into so many different things, like a keychain, or a holiday ornament, or you can just leave it as a tiny plush, there are really so many possibilities! This pattern works up really fast, so you can make a swarm of cute little bees in no time at all!

I just think little bees are just the cutest and they do so much good for the planet! And, how cool is it that their tiny little wings are able to carry their bodies?! Bees are just the best. Fun fact: bees have a brain the size of a poppyseed, isn't that wild?! These bees work up really quickly and you only have to sew on the wings, which is a huge plus for me since I dislike attaching crochet pieces, it always takes me so long!

Assembly is pretty easy! Just pin the wings on the middle stripe of yellow (or wherever you want them to go, it's your bee, you do you <3) and sew them down. If you want to attach a string or a keychain, I recommend putting it right in between the wings! And then you're all done!! Such a quick pattern right?!
