My friend’s 40th birthday party is tomorrow and as part of his present i crocheted him a bear , though not just any old bear – a birthday bear ,with a little party hat on . I guess you’re never to old for a bear lol As with all my crochet toys i just made it up as i went along , using a pinterest photo as a reference . The original is much better shaped but im quite happy with mine , i got these really cool mini pom poms from Tescos a while back which were perfect for the little hat .(iv included the inspiration pic from pinterest incase anyone wants to buy the pattern.)
grey, cream and honey coloured wool
embroidery thread for eyes
felt for nose
hot glue gun for piecing it together
little piece of ribbon for tie
little piece of card for hat
mini pom poms
