Teddy Bear Teddy Bear..

Touch the ground. Teddy Bear, teddy bear turn around... Okay I have WAY too many childrens' books in my head... This is a little bear I made for Mimi! I wanted to post about her but had to hold myself back until I heard from Mimi that she got the box I sent her in. I used Crochet_Queens' bear pattern (before she started selling her pattern on Etsy--looks like she needs to reload her patterns there, too...) But, it was really more of a guideline, not a row-by-row pattern. So, I ended up buying the pattern anyway. :p Anyway.... I used Red Heart 'Monet' for Mimi's bear, and an H hook. The dress I crocheted in thread and used a pattern for Crocheted Teddy Bear Clothes or something. A pattern one of my aunts gave me a long time ago. That was the first time I ever used it, actually. Isn't she cute? I actually made two of these. One for Mimi, and one for Lene. The one I made for Lene was exactly the same, but I used Red Heart 'Summer Breeze' (also a variegated). I think I'd like to make one for myself one day, too. When my WIP pile is gone. Hey, did you know you could get any of Starbucks coffees made with soy milk!? I did not. Well last night I went in there (someone gave us a Starbucks card for our anniversary!! Woo Hoo!) and asked the girl. She said 'Yea' (like, 'duh'?) I am doing a happy dance! I took my tall mocha made with soy milk and drove to Garden of the Gods, and sat there and crocheted! Aaaaah.... Peace and quiet, a starbucks coffee (that didn't make my stomach hurt), and crocheting! What could be better? I didn't stay long, because my hubby had to go help his mom at 7, but it was still long enough. I finished two rows on a doily I am making my brother and his wife, for a wedding present. (They are the couple who has everything, so I am making them something they might not have...) Well have a nice week everyone and thanks for stopping by! :)

That looks so good! I thought it was a sewn bear at first with a crocheted dress...I did a double-take when I read your entry and realized it was all crocheted. Great job.

It is really super-dooper cute Tina! I love every detail, and I'm really amazed with the dress and all, your so creative and patient, and fast too! You could have had a room full of stuff you crocheted, but most of it you gave away ;) And I'm really lucky to receive this bear :D
Btw, Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby! Hope you have many many more years together in love and happiness, and whatever comes in between.

Thank you all for stopping by! I know I could have a room full of things I crocheted, (actually, I do, in the kids' rooms...) ;p But none for me though. I am going to make myself a bear when my WIP pile gets lower...

Thank you for the anniversary wishes, Mimi. We have been married for fourteen years now.
