Here are my first two bears for the Mother Bear Project for 2017. These both were crocheted in the round without turning or chaining to start each round. I have a seamless bear tutorial here if anyone wants to learn more about how I crochet my bears.
The Mother Bear Project is an organization dedicated to providing comfort and hope to children, primarily those affected by HIV/AIDS in emerging nations, by giving them a gift of love in the form of hand-knit and crocheted bears.
Photos are shared of the children receiving the bears from time to time through the organization. I must tell you that it is just priceless when you see a bear you have made in the lovely arms of a child so far away. I just spotted this Scotty bear of mine that I crocheted in 2016 in the last photo group.
If anyone is interested in helping make Mother Bears, please join us over at the Mother Bear Project group on Ravelry.
