Hazel the Bear Free Crochet Pattern


Outer Space Finger Puppets

Happy Tuesday my fellow crafters!


There’s nothing like a handmade teddy bear to evoke memories of childhood and create new ones for the future. I recently finished crocheting this adorable bear, and I’m excited to share the process with you all. This little bear is more than just a toy; he's a bundle of love and joy, perfect for snuggling.


I'll be sharing for free the crochet instructions to create the Bear

here below. If you want to crochet the BOW-TIE and learn how to create the EYE INDENTATION, head over my Etsy page for the complete version of the pattern.
