Crochet Bumblebee pattern

The pattern contains 9 pages of instructional material accompanied by 45 photos.
Basic crochet skills are a prerequisite.
The pattern is available in English (US terms).
The final size will depend on the yarn you use. To get the smallest size, use embroidery thread.

Crochet level: begginer and above.
To crochet this Bumblebee, you will need:

• Gamma Cloud embroidery floss in white, black and yellow. Use 1 strand. (Possible substitute: Adelia Kiss yarn, it is identical to the Cloud thread). The thinner is the thread, the smaller is your finished toy, and vice versa. You can also use tapestry wool.
• Black sewing thread (to make the legs and to sew on pieces).
• 0.3 mm black wire for bead weaving (for the antennae)
• 0.4 mm black metal wire for the legs.
• 0.5 mm crochet hook.
• Gel super glue.
• Gel clear glue.
• A small piece of transparent plastic for the wings. (Any candy/cookies, etc. box plastic lid will do, the key is for the plastic to be thin like a sheet of paper. Bottle plastic will not work due to its cylindrical shape)
• Thin strong needle.
• Stationary knife.
• Sharp manicure scissors, pliers.
• Velcro fastener or slicker brush to brush the bumblebee.
• Ocher color chalk pastel for toning and a flat synthetic brush.
• Fiber filler.
• Toothpick or a broken felting needle to use as a stuffing tool.
