Finishing

  1. Thread a yarn needle with tan yarn. Position an arm on each side of the body with the top of each arm just below the neck. Insert the needle 1/2 inch down on one arm, through the body and out through the other arm. Pull the yarn through leaving a 4-inch tail. Insert the needle back through the second arm and out the first. Clip the yarn leaving a 4-inch tail. Tie the tails together in a knot. Weave in the ends and clip off the excess.
     
  2. Place the legs on each side of the body with the top of the legs over the fourth round from the bottom of the body. Attach the legs in the same way as the arms.


     
  3. Thread an embroidery needle with black floss. Insert the needle through the back of the neck to the front of the head. Attach the bead eyes 1/4 inch above the nose and 1/4 inch apart. Take a couple of whip stitches over the tip of the nose to define the nose. Insert the needle back through the head to the back of the neck. Knot and cut the floss.
     
  4. Pierce the side of an empty beverage can using household scissors. Cut off the bottom and the top of the can. Cut the remainder of the can open from top to bottom. Lay the metal out flat. Using a 3/8-inch heart paper punch, punch one heart. Pierce three holes evenly around the heart using an embroidery needle. Pull the needle all the way through to provide a large enough hole for sewing.
     
  5. Thread an embroidery needle with red floss. Position the heart on the upper left side of the bear's chest. Insert the needle into the back of the neck to the heart on the front. Stitch the heart to the body through each hole on the heart. Insert to needle back through the body and out the back of the neck. Knot and clip the floss.
     
  6. Rip a 1-inch-wide by 15-inch long strip from blue and white homespun fabric. Wrap the strip around the neck and tie in a bow. Trim the ends.

No matter the size, you cannot go wrong with a Teddy Bear. No matter how many new toys hit the market, I know every child has had at least one teddy bear. What better way to express love than to make it yourself. This is a cute one that seems really easy to make.

So the directions of the mini teddy bear crochet pattern required the use of a beverage can. I was really confused until I read through the directions. The little heart attached to the bear is made from the beverage can. I suppose, I would have purchased heart buttons or better yet, made it from thread. Great idea though.

I just looked at it and plan on making it soon. Thank you for the pattern it is so easy to read and follow
