Teddy Bears

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! :)

This is "Captain Jack Bear-O" and "Summer". I made them for a friend to give to her God children. I LOVE how Jack Bear-O turned out! He is my favorite of all the teddy bears. It took me a long time to figure out how to make the hat with his ear going through it, but I think it really adds to the whole package. Summer is the same style as Turqua, but with different colors and clips that fit with her theme.

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!
