It was raining last weekend and I finally had some time to crochet so I created my own Bonbon Bears with the pattern I had saved.
I'm not an expert crocheter; so I was thrilled to have step by step easy to follow instructions and a project I could finish in one sitting. The bears fit in my hand and required small amounts of yarn so I was able to use yarn left over from other projects.
I followed Stephanie's pattern; but I secured the safety eyes and noses in place where I wanted them to be located before stuffing and closing up the head and body.
I did some brainstorming with my friend Pat. She is an experienced sewer with a license plate that reads "IQUILT2" We came up with some ideas for a folk art doll that would have the wooden heart faces and a fabric body and crochet arms.
We worked on the prototype doll today. Get a Sneak Peak of part of the project below. We're tweaking the pattern now and adding some finishing touches. Look for the finished doll and pattern to be shared with you soon!
