For the little Minimee bumblebee we first crochet head and body from top down in spiral rounds. Then you crochet feelers, arms, legs and wings for your Amigurumi bumblebee. Finally all the pieces are put together and then you can decorate your Amigurumi bumblebee as you like.
We start with the head of the Amigurumi bumblebee and crochet it from top down in spiral rounds. Do not cut the thread after you finished the head, because the body will be crocheted right at the bottom.
When your feelers are done, you just tie a knot at the beginning of the line of chain stitches. The thread end of the beginning is very useful to not break your fingers. However you need to be careful, that the knot is really on the line of chain stitches and not on the thread end. When you are done, you can carefully cut the thread end at the knot. But do not cut into the knot or into the chain stitches, otherwise it will literally dissolve in the air.
Next we crochet the wings for the mini bumblebee in spiral rounds. We start at the outer curve and work towards the beginning. Since the crocheted bumblebee has two wings, you should crochet also 2 wings of course.
Now you are almost done, because all parts are finished. Before you start to assemble the little Amigurumi bumblebee, you can do a little fitting. To do this first fix the parts with pins to see the correct posions. This way you can easily fix bugs and the result will be a beautiful little bumblebee.
The feelers you tie both on the top of the head. They are seen from above in a line through the middle of the head and parallel to the eyes. The arms are tied after the 15th round with about 4 stitches distance and the legs after the 22nd round with about 3 stitches distance.
Here it helps to find the middle between the eyes first and the to attach the arms and the legs to the left and the right of it. It is more important to keep the same distance to the middle as to keep the distance between both parts exactly. To support you, you will find here also a tutorial that shows you how to tie small pieces to an amigurumi.
The two wings of the bumblebee are folded flat and sewn with the thread ends to the back of the bumblebee. The open sides of the wing run vertically to the middle of the back and point on to the right or the left.
Tadaaa! Now you can admire your little bumblebee, because its already finished. I hope you had fun crocheting and with your little bumblebee!
Matching the bumblebee your can also crochet a little bee. Both are an absolutely gorgeous couple!
