Crochet Bee Pattern

This crochet bee pattern is about 8 inches from stinger to antenna. The pattern is worked up from the bottom. The body and head are made in one piece, with the antennae and wings attached separately.This is a very easy crochet bee pattern and is perfect for a beginner.

Meet Buzz the Bee! Buzz loves flying among the flowers (roses are his favorite). He also loves drinking nectar with his bee friends while he watches the sun set. But while he is content with his life, Buzz really dreams of flying into space and trading the flowers for stars. His favorite movie is Toy Story. Can you guess his favorite character?
