Bumblebees for Spring!

It’s spring in Sydney and that means fresh strawberries, flowers and ice cold lemonade feature heavily in our weekends. Lottie is almost 3 and really into tea parties and role playing with food. I have to check the grill for plastic donuts before putting on dinner!

I used HappyBerry Crochet’s wonderful pattern to create this strawberry –

– which was such a hit I’m going to make a few more for the play kitchen.

Today’s project though is this bumble bee courtesy of  Mohu Blog and it turned out great!

I’ll be knocking out a few more for a friend’s little girls as soon as I’ve got more wool and a rattle ball to pop in the middle. I made the wings bigger and just did simpler eyes than in the pattern.

Both the strawberries and the bees take less an an hour to complete and make great gifts or additions to a home made mobile.

Happy Saturday everyone!
