Save the Bees Summer Competition 2021

This summer Kerry Lord is setting you the challenge to make one (or two!) honey bees and then snap a photo of them with your favourite flower and share it to Instagram or Facebook using #edssummerbees. Tag in @toft_uk for a chance to win an amazing bundle of TOFT goodies worth over £250 and let’s fill our fields and feeds with mood-lifting blooms all Summer long!

With the introduction of three hives (and counting) at TOFT HQ, we’ll be bringing you updates and information about honey bees throughout the Summer, and we’ve all been learning about what we can do to help save the bees.

Once you’ve picked your favourite TOFT colours to combine, all you need to do is order your kit, make your bee and take a photo of her with some flowers. Your kit includes enough yarn and eyes to make two bees should you wish to, but you only need to make one and photograph it for the competition.

If you are based in the UK you can also opt to receive some FREE wild seed balls to plant.

To be in with a chance of winning this year's Summer Competition, make sure that you share your photo of Nancy on Instagram and/or Facebook before midnight, Sunday 5th September 2021 using the #edssummerbees and tag in @toft_uk.

THIS KIT CONTAINS: 75g of TOFT's luxury DK wool in the colours of your choice:
Shown here using:
25g Camel
25g Charcoal
25g Cream

2 pairs of Black Saftey Eyes

Optional Seed Balls (unfortunatley due to international law we cannot ship these outside the UK and so these will not be included in any of the international parcels).

The crochet pattern is provided digitally in .pdf format. You can download this from a link that will appear in your MY TOFT area and at the bottom of your order confirmation email, which you can save or print at your own convenience.

YOU WILL NEED: 3mm crochet hook, toy stuffing, a wool needle.

MEASUREMENTS: When finished each bee will measure approximately 15cm length.

SKILL LEVEL: 3 : Contains small chunks of more challenging techniques, but still suitable for a confident beginner with the help of our video tutorials.

IT WILL TAKE: approximately 1-5 hrs crochet time.

All orders are hand-picked and packed by our team in Warwickshire into our fully recyclable and reusable packaging.
