  • Step 1

    Make the Furry Bear
    1. Crochet each part. For the white bear, crochet the body, arms, and feet with stripes. For the black bear, crochet the polka dots and sew them to the body as shown, or create your own fun pattern.
    2. Stuff each part, except the ears. Make sure to use the wrong side of the single crochet as the outside fabric.
    3. Attach the eyes and nose to the head. Embroider the nose and mouth, as shown in the diagram.
    4. Sew all parts together, as shown on page 49.
    5. Slip the shoes onto the feet.
