Crochet Amigurumi Bear Pattern


Do you ever have this great idea, and it just sits there forever because instead of making it, you are making peanut butter sandwiches, memories, and excuses for why your house isn't clean? That is me!! I have been working on this for MUCH longer than it warranted... But these kids won't stay little for ever, right? So it has been a little hit and miss on the blog, but I am finally back with a free pattern! This little teddy bear is so sweet! It is also a great beginner pattern. The finished bear is about 13 inches tall- perfect size for snuggling! I love that it has a more anthropomorphic shape... That makes it easy to dress up! 
Add a little shawl and some blush... 


Or a cute little bow tie!

Or it is pretty cute on its own!
