Felted Amigurumi Bear


bear_frnt_sm1.jpg bear_bk_sm1.jpg Here is teddy bear. He was crocheted using a 5.5mm hook and Paton’s Classic Merino wool. He was hand felted in hot water in a large bowl with dish soap. Scrubbing for about 10 minutes wearing rubber gloves. He was then rinsed in cold water, shaped then air dried. I just sewed the eyes and nose on this morning. I really like his tiny tail!

So it turns out teddy bear #1 was a girl: Bea Bear! She’s a little chubby, but that’s what makes her cute! She eats a bit too many honey donuts late at night, so she’s rolly-poly Bea Bear!

    These teddies are adorable!!! The aprés felted bears look like well-loved jeans that fit like a glove. It’s amazing how much shaping you’re able to do, especially on the toes! Well done Mar!

    Is there a pattern for teddy #2? I want to organize a “teddies of love” in my town which would have volunteers sew, chrochet and knit teddy bears for the children who come to the womens shelter escaping domestic violence and other situation. I want to give them something special to have and hold and keep to comfort them. Something they don’t have to give up.
    Thanks.
