Little Lemon Bee

I crocheted this for @Juju in the IYP 2023 Swap.
She had a lemon bee on her Pinterest list, which was a short and sweet video of a lady making it buzz around outside. I found a pattern online for a black and white version then substituted for Premier Parfait Chunky yarn in a yellow and a white for the body plus a light blue for the wings. The eyes in the pattern were large beads, but I prefer the snap-on kind from when I used to make more amigurumi. I had run out of eyes at some point and never bought more, so I had to make an order at the last minute which made me send late for the swap. Stash fail.

The yarn makes this little lemon bee SUPER snuggly.

I just got bit by a wasp and decided I hated all bees. You changed my mind. I love them again. I wish they were all as snuggly as this one!

What a cutie! That special yarn makes you want to reach out and squeeze this fluffy, baby bee! I think she would make a sweet kitten toy.

Thank you! I think if it were a kitty toy I would embroider some eyes than use plastic.
