Birthday Gift!

My granddaughter just celebrated her first birthday! I will be seeing her in a couple weeks and I wanted to make her something special. I thought a teddy bear would be nice but it had to be a certain kind. Not the kind that just sits in a crib or on a shelf....but one that a child will hold and drag around with them like a buddy. This little bear seemed perfect....

Buttercup Bear

Buttercup is a very easy pattern...you can find it HERE. I used O-Wool Balance (which is an organic merino/cotton blend) and an F hook so she is about 15" long...a little longer than the pattern indicates. But a nice size for a child to grow with. I added the scarf made of Patons Grace in a blo stitch leaving the ends for a fringe. And I put a jingle bell ball in the body just for fun. I am hoping this little bear will become a special friend to Lillith. She took me a little over a day to make. Give her a try. You can use different colors on the body parts to look like clothing, if you want. But I think her simple look is very classic.
