Tiny bears and bunnies

When getting ready for a craft show in May, I decided to use up some of the fingering weight cotton I had left over from larger projects and made a few cute tiny bears and bunnies. They turned out to be so popular I sold out rather quickly, so I'm making more for the next one.

Small teddy bears

I'm still in love the little bear pattern - it's so quick and easy to make. And if using DK or even fingering weight yarn, the result is so adorably tiny. But this time I went for a chunky wool and acrylic blend, Lanagold Plus from Alize, for a more huggable size.

Teddy Bear Clown

I found an unfinished pattern from 2014 I had forgotten all about. Feels good to finally get a project done, although I must admit I still have quite a large box waiting for inspiration to strike again.

Christmas teddy bear

Last year I wrote three Christmas patterns - an angel and elves. This year I thought I'd make something a bit simpler with not quite as many details, that would take a bit less time to make, knowing this is the busiest time of the year for most crocheters. So, meet my little Christmas bear, eager to be one of Santa's little helpers.

Panda Bear Mod

I started working on a panda bear, but then realized I already have a teddy bear pattern that would work great, all I needed to do is change the color scheme a bit and add patches around the eyes. So that's what I did. And if you want to make one yourself, keep reading, I will talk you through all the details.

But first, a few photos to show off mine.
