Pattern: head by Ana Rimoli
Yarn: Caron Simply Party Sparkle Teal
Hook: Size F
Notions: 6mm safety eyes, white and teal felt, and DMC 310 and 3846
Good evening! I found a small head pattern in one of the books I got for my birthday. I actually didn't finish the entire pattern because I ran out of yarn! I had to slip stitch at the end of one of the rows and then use a running stitch with the last of my yarn to close the circle. Talk about good timing.
Since I didn't have any thread to make ears (I was hoping to make bunny ears), I decided to use felt and make a tiny bear. I used teal felt for the ears and I decorated the edges of the ears with a blanket stitch. I used white felt for the mouth and black thread for the nose and smile.
I wanted to make this little guy into a keyring charm, but when I was going through my stash, I saw the heart shaped clips so I went with a bag clip finish for my little bear. He's off to join our other kawaii amigurumi plushies in our Etsy shop.
So adorable! I can't believe I'm out of that yarn. I love the sparkly color in Caron's Party brand. I can't find that yarn at HB so I'll have to stop by the dreaded Wal-mart and stock up on different colors!
Until next time ^____^
