Mother Bear for March

March 30, 2018 No comments yet

I just finished crocheting my first Mother Bear for the year. I haven’t had too much time lately to work on bears for the Mother Bear Project but did want to crochet one more bear to ship off to the organization.

Here is Mr. Bare Bear who was crocheted using a partial skein of Yarn Bee Fair Isle yarn in purple teal multi colorway. I tried to match a few areas as I crocheted the parts of the bear so there was some matching of colors. I added a simple scarf using the same skein of yarn.

This bear uses the crochet pattern from the Mother Bear Project but it has been adapted to be seamless and without joining. You can read more on my mods of the original crochet pattern here if you’d like more info.

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 […]

Superman Mother Bear

August 10, 2016 3 comments

It was super hero theme in July for the Mother Bear Project at Ravelry. I decided that I wanted to crochet a Superman teddy bear for the project.

Here is Superman or maybe I should say Superbear.

I crocheted my bear in the round and seamless using this crochet bear tutorial. I used a piece of gold felt to draw the S logo for my Superman costume with markers and then just glued it onto the bear. I crocheted the red cape by attaching red yarn to the side of the neck and single crocheting around to the other side of the neck. I then crocheted in double crochet stitching until I had the desired length for the Superman cape.

These theme teddy bears are just so much fun to make. You can see all the different bears that were crocheted and knitted for the children at our Ravelry […]

Crocheted Seamless Mother Bear Project

May 22, 2016 9 comments

This is post to help those using the seamless crochet pattern for the Mother Bear Project. I purchased the seamless crochet pattern from the MBP site. After participating in a CAL for the bears, several of us found some valuable tips to help in crocheting the seamless bears. I want to share with you all the helpful ideas and pattern tips that we want to pass along.

I love to crochet in the round without having to turn or join. So after getting the seamless crochet bear pattern, I set out to figure out a way to do just that.

Go to the official Mother Bear Site by clicking on the logo below.

So as I have stated, I wanted to crochet my bear in the round without joining or working chain 1s for each row. Here is a leg piece to show the outcome. This particular leg has just 4 rows in the bear body color and then 11 rows for the pants up to the point where you join the legs together to work the rest of the pants. This varies from the original pattern but depending on your yarn, design, and other factors, crochet as needed to obtain the size and design you desire.


Here is a leg piece to share, I end at the side of the leg and simply join a new color with a SC (single crochet) stitch and work in the round. […]
