Tiny Teddy Bear Pattern

Updated: Feb 29

Next in line to get an updated pattern is the Tiny Teddy Bear! I really like the original pattern, but there's a few things I've been wanting to change and all this time in quarantine has given me the excuse to do so! The biggest change I've made was to change the snout a bit to make it a bit smaller and changing the arms a bit because the original arms never really laid flat against the body like they were meant to. I've also included more pictures and instructions to help with assembly, so I hope the pattern is easier to understand now!

Well, let's get crocheting!

Start by attaching the body to the base of the head, then attach the snout between the eyes. After the snout is attached, pin the ears into place to make sure they're right where you want them, then sew them on. For maximum cuteness when attaching the arms, don't attach directly on the sides of the body, bring them just slightly forward! This is my favorite look for arms! Then place your bear on a flat surface and pin the legs into place, making sure that the bear can for the most part hold itself up. After the legs are attached, set the bear down on a flat surface again and pin the tail into place so that it's helping to prop the teddy bear up and keeping it from tipping over, this may take some fiddling with. After you're done sewing the tail, you're all finished! How exciting!

I really hope you enjoy your new bear friend! If you do, you should take me on Instagram so I can see your wonderful creations! (@cutiepie_crochet)
