How did you sew the mouth on this cute bee?

Hi Everyone! I love this cute little bee and have it all done except for the wings! I am having trouble understanding the directions; I don't understand the part about "working on opposite side of ch." It doesn't say to "turn" and work along the back, but it does say to turn later on. I have tried different things and I don't come out with the right number of stitches to work on and it just doesn't look right! I would really appreciate any help, I am so frustrated and would really like to finish this cute little guy and make more for my grandchildren. Thank you so very much, Happy New Year to all in 2013!

I have a friend who just loves bees, not the real ones, just....shall we say artificial ones. I am planning on seeing her in August and will try to get one done for her. I will also make one for my granddaughter. This bee is just too cute.

I really like it............. I'm going to try it myself............ Hopefully it turns out because it seems sort of tricky...............

Having made many, many amigurumi animals I found this one to be adorable. Made the first bee for my great grandaughter age 8 and she loved it. Keep them coming.

@kalicokids So glad you liked it! I think it's adorable, too!

I have made many, many amigurumi animals and this is one of the cutest. My great grandaughter (age 8) was the first recipient of this one and she loved it. Keep them coming.

Thank you for the bee pattern, I made one into a puppet for my daughter to take to music instead of the cardboard one she was using. Very cute and easy to do.
