Bumble is a BIG, HAPPY, ‘bumbly’ Bee that you’d just want to pick up and HUG! The world needs bees and everyone can have their own cuddly one! Bumble has some small bits like feelers, so I’d say this pattern is not great for a beginner... unless you desparately want a bee! Did you know Bees come in ALL different colours? We even have Australian Bees that are BLUE! So go wild and make your Bee any colour you like!
