Can you be ‘fairy’ certain that bees are not fairies in disguise? After all appearances can bee deceiving! With that intriguing thought I’d like to introduce you to Beelinda the Bee Fairy – the un-bee-lievably cute little fairy doll that’s sure to bring a smile to your face!
When she’s not off frolicking in the flowers she’ll be ready to enchant anyone who sees her. And her pattern is available now in the June 2022 edition of Happily Hooked Magazine.
Beelinda is most definitely the bee’s knees when it comes to imaginative play, or as a decorative addition to your home, and she’s sure to become a firm favourite with anyone that wants to sprinkle some of their very own floral fairy magic around.
For my version of Beelinda I used Ricorumi DK with a 3mm hook (closest US size D/3). If you are not not familiar with the yarn it is 100% Cotton which comes in 25g [57.5 meters] balls. I used six colours in total; just 1 ball of Nude (023), Saffron (063), Black (060), White (001), Nougat (056) and Fuchsia (014). I love Ricorumi DK for amigurumi as it comes in the cute little balls in loads of different colours so I can usually find the shades that I’m looking for.
It retails for about £1.25 per ball (approx. $1.67) so it’s perfect for when you need just a small amount of a colour – though it’s hard not to just want all 80 shades!
The only other materials you would need are 2 x 8mm black safety eyes, toy stuffing, black sewing thread, a yarn needle and some blusher (optional, but it’s just normal makeup).
If you love bees or fairies then you need to add this cute crochet fairy doll to your collection! Beelinda is just waiting to share her magic with you.
