Diana Mother Bear #46

I finally got my Mojo back after several years and crocheted two Mother Bears. Each month over at the Mother Bear group on Ravelry, they feature a theme. Wonderful women was the theme for March. I crocheted Diana bear in honor of my SIL who passed away and who was such a wonderful, warm, and loving person. Here is Diana bear dressed up using the free Mother Bear flower dress pattern.

Next is Aurora bear for the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights. This Red Heart Stripes yarn worked out just right for reflecting this month’s theme of sky items.

Introducing the latest of my recycled bags. This is a wheelchair or walker tote that is crocheted all in recycled plastic bags. Some people also call them a wheelchair carrier as you use them to carry things such as books, newspapers or tissues.

This recycled bag was crocheted using the free puff stitch wheelchair tote pattern. It features a red, white and blue striped theme. As it is hard to find these special colored bags, I only crocheted the puff stitches on the front of the tote. Each puff stripe row used less than 2 colored plastic bags made into plarn to crochet.

I used a K (6.5 mm) crochet hook to work this tote bag. Final finished size is 10.5 inches wide by 9 inches long with 6.75 inch straps. I added
