Amy the Squishy Bee Free Crochet Pattern



Happy Tuesday my crafty friends!


Let's teach our little ones the importance of bees in our world with this cute amigurumi - her name is Amy and apart from being super cute, she is extremely soft and cuddly!!


Here are some fun facts about bees you can share with your kids:

  • Bees are the only insect in the world that make food that humans can eat.

  • Bees have been here about 30 million years!

  • Bees fly about 20 mph

  • An average beehive can hold around 50,000 bees

  • A bee produces a teaspoon of honey (about 5 grams) in her lifetime

My cute Bee is worked with a soft, warm, and fluffy yarn made of 100% merino wool - DHG PIUMA yarn...the result is extremely soft and cuddly - a perfect toy for the little ones!


DHG Shop is an Italian fiber and textile company that offers all you need for your felt, hand spinning, knitting and handcrafting projects.
