In the past year or so I have made several teddy bears. The pattern for the bear itself is not mine. I got it out of this book. I did, however, freehand all accessories for each bear. They took anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks each, and I loved all the different themes I was able to create.
Here are some photos of my favorites!
This is "Country Bear". I made her for one of my co-workers to give to his neice. It is hard to see in this picture, but there is a hair clip attached to the hat that comes off to put in your own hair. I created this vest specifically for this bear, and unfortunately never wrote down the pattern.
This is "Turqua Bear". She is named that because the color of yarn I used was called Turqua. I made this bear for a friend to give to her daughter for Easter. While you can't see it in this photo, Turqua is wearing a pink backpack that has several sets of hair clips in it for you to wear in your own hair. Also, the clips she is wearing by her ears, as well as the flower on her dress come off to wear in your hair. I had so much fun making her, and Michelle's daughter LOVED her! :)
Teddy bears filled most of the last year, so I am taking a break from them for awhile (with the exception of one I have half done for a pregnant friend). I still have so many projects in the works to fill a lifetime, so I am sure I will have more to post soon!
