Bedtime Bear

Presenting .... : Bedtime Bear! Made for a work colleagues 1 year old little girl.
Pattern: Simply Knitting Magazine, Issue 13 April
Yarn: GGH Amelie [now discontinued, but still available at Loop]
Skills learned: First time making a knitted toy and embroidering onto knitted fabric.
Modifications: None - had to knit blind as I had no idea how it was going to become a bear until nearly sewing up time.

An added label on her bum!

I wanted it to look like the old-fashioned style bears, but with the more modern yarn, and I hope she loves it.

Awwww, that is so cute! I liked that you used pink thread for the face detail. She'll love it!

Thank you for my comment on my Summertime Tunic! I wanted to let you know that the straps are actually not ribbon, I actually made my own sort of bias tape out of some fabric I had. I liked the way it turned out.
