Mother Bear Flower Skirt

April 2, 2019 No comments yet

Here is a new Mother Bear idea that I wanted to share. Add a flower skirt to your bear. I crocheted this Mother Bear body all in BLO and added this skirt to finish off my bear. The head is crocheted in both loops.

This bear was crocheted using Red Heart yarn in a Flamenco stripe skein to crochet the Mother Bear. Then I added a skirt around the waist using some plum Love This Cotton yarn. I had just a small piece of the Flamenco stripe yarn left in pink so used that for the reverse SC trim around the bottom of the skirt.

Directions for skirt:

Starting at back of bear for attaching row, single crochet (SC) around the waist of the bear to start the skirt and join to beginning. *Ch 2 and working in the round and without turning, work 1 Double Crochet (DC) in next stitch then 2 DC in next stitch*. Repeat around and join with slip stitch to top of chain 2.

Mother Bears with Stripes

August 2, 2018 No comments yet

I received a wonderful box of yarn from an on-line friend filled with Red Heart Stripes yarn. There are about 6 different varieties of the Stripes yarn in the box. I started out using the Fruity Stripe colorway to crochet this first Mother Bear.

I use the Mother Bear Project seamless crochet pattern and crocheted all in the BLO for each of these bears. I also played around with the skein to avoid using the yellows and golds which I saved for the next bear.

Next came Anna Mother Bear using the yellow and golds in the skein. Anna bear is sporting a pretty fuchsia shell skirt. Here is the free Mother Bear skirt pattern I used for her skirt.

Here is the final bear crocheted using the leftover Fruity Stripe yarn from the skein for the body of the bear.

Latest Mother Bears

Here are bears number 25 and 26 I crocheted for the Mother Bear Project. This is a charity that is near and dear to my heart. The first bear features a colorful shirt that I crocheted using this bear skirt pattern with a yarn bear kit that Delights sent me for winning a Bingo on Ravelry. The kit included the pretty scarf that matched the yarn so it all worked into a cute little outfit for my bear.

Next is my little Jammie bear that I crocheted with MillaMia Yarn that was donated by LoveCrochet.com for my Mother Bear #26. My Jammie bear is crocheted seamless changing yarn every 2 rows. This wool yarn is very soft and super nice to work with.

I added a ruffle collar to my Jammie bear by crocheting Sc, skip 1 st, 6 DC, skip 1 st, repeat around the neck. I then just crocheted a chain and SC down the chain

Mother Bear Skirt & Bloomers

February 16, 2016 2 comments

If you read my last post, you know that I have been busy crocheting Mother Bears for the organization that sends teddy bears to children in foreign countries. I crocheted a Mother Bear hoodie on one teddy bear and then crocheted this girl bear with a skirt and bloomers.

This bear and her clothing were crocheted using medium weight acrylic yarn. The basic bear was crocheted using the seamless crochet bear pattern found at the Mother Bear Project site. My pattern details are a guideline for adding the skirt and bloomers but make sure you check your fit on your bear as you crochet.

I crocheted the skirt with a G (4 mm) crochet hook. Attach at back of waist on bear and follow pattern directions below. I crocheted the skirt working from the waist down and crocheted with the bear upside down as I added the skirt.
