FRIDAY FUN DAY! - Love Bug Softie Crochet Pattern

Love Bug Softie Crochet Pattern 
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs

Meet Buzzy The Love Bug!
He will fly right into Your heart with its golden wings.

This is a super cute and fun Crochet Pattern
 that everyone will love. It's quick and easy
 to stitch up, and so fun to give.

It measures about 12 inches tall
 and 14 inches around.
The Love Bug is soft and squishy, 
and the perfect size for playing with.
I probably should have called it 
The Soft and Squishy Love Bug! 

I designed it with yarns I had on hand. 
Redheart Sweet Home in Berry Bliss, 
and Bernat Blanket Yarn in Cream and Gold. 
So Any Bulky (6) blanket yarn will work
 for this project.
