Teddy, crochet bear pattern

And this is Teddy, a very sweet and traditional looking crochet bear amigurumi.

amigurumi bear, crochet teddy bear

Most of my crochet animals are made with Istex Lett Lopi, a rough and fuzzy 100% wool yarn from Iceland. But this Teddy bear I made with another kind of yarn. I found it in a local shop and just fell in love with it.

"gehaakte beer onderdelen"It was such a soft and beautiful coloured yarn, just perfect for a little Teddy. All I remember is that it was a Phildar worsted weight yarn. It’s not available anymore but that doesn’t really matter, there are so many suitable yarns to make a cute Teddy and I bet it isn’t hard to find these colours.

I designed this bear as a ‘quick to crochet’ pattern. It will only take you a day to make this bear. It’s not a big bear, but if you want to make a bigger bear, just use the heaviest yarn and the hook that works best with it to get a significantly larger bear.

Here are some more pictures of the finished crochet bear and below them you can find info about & links to buy the pattern.

Boeloe, crochet koala bear pattern

Many crafters are making koalas at the moment to give attention to this vulnerable animal that has suffered so much from the fires in Australia. I decided to join them and have designed a beautiful koala amigurumi pattern. This is Boeloe, a super-sweet and vulnerable-looking crochet koala.

realistic crochet koala bear

It really breaks my heart to read and see what has happened to animals in Australia. Not only koalas and other mammals but so many birds, reptiles and insects have suffered and died in the fires. It’s devastating! I really hope designers like myself can help rescue wildlife and restore habitats a little bit by designing patterns so people can make and sell the dolls to collect money to donate to Australian wildlife organisations. I will donate the earnings from the first six patterns I sell to Wires, an Australian wildlife rescue organisation. I know it is not a huge amount, but even small donations help.

When designing this animal, there were so many pictures of burned and suffering animals that it was hard to find example pictures. But I tried my best to create a cute and realistic-looking crochet koala. Very important to me was to capture its vulnerability, which was difficult. I figured that as long as I tried to make the face look as realistic as possible, it should work. When I posted a teaser picture on Instagram, someone commented “so sweet and vulnerable-looking.” I was really glad it showed! Despite all the devastating pictures, it was interesting to design this pattern. To me, koalas are kind of silly-looking animals, with their big heads and lack of tails. But they are incredibly cute and they have absolutely gorgeous, almost teddy-like fur. It was a fun challenge to design a pattern that matched that cuteness. I had thought about brushing the animal all over, but I decided not to. The texture of the Lopi yarn adds enough fuzziness, and I like it when you can clearly see that it is a crochet animal. Here are some more pictures of this adorable koala amigurumi and below them you can find info about and links to buy the pattern.

New Teddy images

My crochet teddy bear is one of the first crochet patterns I designed. Back then I didn’t create a little studio for photographing my dolls and because of that I never had images of Teddy like the ones I make now.

So, I decided to take some new and better images of Teddy.

Teddy-2

Because my old Teddy bear pictures are ‘high ranking’ in google search, I can’t, dare to replace them, even though I like these better.

This bear will always be very special to me. He’s very photogenic and has this funny expression which I adore.

You can find the original teddy post here, and the pattern is for sale here or via direct order.

 

It’s Halloween!

crochet-teddy-witch-hat-

Unfortunately Halloween is not celebrated in the Netherlands but I always loved to pay some attention to it, mostly by making spooky illustrations and the like.

These days of course I design Halloween themed crochet patterns, like Mr. Creeper, that witch hat Teddy is wearing and this year I designed a bat crochet pattern.

The patterns for both the Teddy bear and the witch hat you can find in the sidebar if you scroll down a bit.

Enjoy your wonderful Halloween!

 

Yarn experiment….

….while making my little bear pattern.

I’m working on a crochet pattern for a little teddy bear amigurumi. It’s a pattern I’ve worked on before and there are already a few little bears. To finally get the pattern right, a new bear must be made. That creates a nice opportunity to try out some special kinds of yarn. This is the yarn:

Wol voor beertjes

The colours are very autumn, really my favourites! It’s Phildar yarn, bought in a local shop, in Haren, near Groningen in the Netherlands.

I have an image in my mind of how I think and hope the bears will turn out, but have no idea if I’m correct….not kitschy I hope. This evening I’m starting crocheting, so in a few days I’ll know! When the crochet bears are done, there will be pictures and the pattern of course.

See you soon.

 

New updates

Hi there, here’s an update on the progress of the updates. I am using the word ‘update’ so often these days I’m even dreaming it, lol. But I don’t mind doing it. The lovely thing about updating older patterns is, and I mean the big updates with new pictures and all, is that it reminds me of how beautiful some of the older animals are. Because their pictures looked less impressive and new crochet animals shift my attention, I seemed to have forgotten about them. But look at this!

When I added this picture to Dandylion’s pattern I thought ‘wow’! Despite his basic shape, Dandylion is the funniest and most mischievous looking crochet cat you can find. I really enjoyed updating his pattern.

I also updated Teddy’s and Balloo’s pattern. With the new pictures, they too look like I designed them recently and I love how they look now.

In short, these are the new updates:

Together with my editor, I’ve re-written the instructions for Dandylion’s head, which you don’t crochet in a spiral. With these new instructions you get an almost invisible colour change. It’s brilliant! And the pictures are new, but that’s obvious.

 

When I took new pictures of Balloo, I realised he looked much more like a lamb than a sheep! The pattern has new and improved pictures.

 

 

Teddy is the first original Son’s Popkes pattern. Now he finally shines bright in his new pictures. The former pictures had some pillows as background and a messy piece of fabric. Not very professional, but despite that people loved him.

 

 

Next week I’m doing an update on Chief and Rupert. Their bellies need to be replaced by the fancy neater bellies I design nowadays and they can use better pictures too.

Happy Easter dear crafters, I really need a little break.
