Sunshine Mother Bear

June 18, 2017 1 comment

I just took a break from my other crocheting to make a bear for the Mother Bear Project. Meet Sunshine bear crocheted seamless and in the round. He’s a bare bear crocheted in his jammies with sleepy eyes.

This is bear number 23 that I have crocheted for this worthy and rewarding charity. If you aren’t familiar with the Mother Bear Project, you can check them out at their official website here or join us over at Ravelry for all the bear making fun.

Donald Mother Bear

I present Donald my latest crocheted bear for the Mother Bear Project. I crocheted this tribute bear in honor of my late uncle who was a big Gonzaga basketball fan. He would be some proud and excited about the Zags making it to the Final Four and for playing for the National Championship.

I crochet my Mother Bears in the round, seamless. I have a picture tutorial here to show how I crochet the pattern without turning or joining. For more info about the Mother Bear Project, check out our Ravelry group here.

So until tomorrow, all I can say is […]

Mother Bears for 2017

February 15, 2017 2 comments

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.[…]

Mother Bear Hoodie Project

November 4, 2016 No comments yet

Here is my latest Mother Bear I crocheted with a hoodie. This bear was crocheted for the Mother Bear Project and features a hood with ties. My original Mother Bear hoodie pattern did not include ties. Another Mother Bear crocheter on Ravelry, TeaLover, added ties to her bear’s hoodie after crocheting my pattern. I just loved how the ties turned out. It is like a built in scarf and looks so cute on the hoodies she made. So with her help, I added ties to my hoodie pattern too.

It is real easy and the ties are crocheted right onto the hoodie before finishing off the project. Here are the changes to make to the original pattern to add the ties. First don’t finish off after the last row, chain 25 […]

Mother Bear Hoodie

January 30, 2016 6 comments

I am crocheting teddy bears for the Mother Bear Project and have some extra clothing ideas to share. I sent for the crocheted seamless bear pattern and found the pattern very easy to follow with lots of opportunities to make variations on the bear’s clothing. A group over at Ravelry is having a KAL/CAL for the Mother Bears and there are some amazing ideas being shared over there if you’d like to check it out. Here is the link to the group.


After seeing another crafter make an adorable hoodie, I knew I just had to make a bear with a hoodie too. If you knit there are instructions for the Bears in the Hood found here but I only crochet so I had to improvise and create a hoodie for my bear.

So after a little trial and error here are the pattern details for a crocheted Mother Bear hoodie.[…]
