This week I really needed something fun and relaxing to make. I have also signed up to participate in a Christmas market at my friend's work in early December! So, I also had to start thinking about what works up quick, cute and saleable for that.
If you haven't tried Anne's free Heart Teddy Bear pattern yet, you totally should! It's so easy, quick and enjoyable :) These little beasties took me less than 4 hours each (I made two yesterday), and used just less than 50g yarn each.
I used different colourways of Stylecraft Wondersoft Merry-Go-Round for each teddy. This is a self-striping yarn, so I get colourful, variable teddies without having to change yarns at all.
I added a special touch to all three - a little embroidered heart on their left chests :)
These little dudes are just so huggable! While I can imagine the hippos and dragons being kept safe on the shelf just to look at (although that does make me a bit sad), these teddies just demand to be hugged and kissed and loved!
Plus, they are a bit cheeky too :P Teddy selfie!
Have you made a Heart Teddy Bear yet?
