Amigurumi Teddy bear pattern

Hello lovelies! I love making amigurumi dolls but i don't have enough patience to make larger ones so i always end up making little amigurumi projects. I guess there are people out there who, like me, would wish to make tiny amigurumi dolls that don't consume lots of time. Then this is a perfect project for you to try. These tiny bears measures only around 2.5 inches. Do go ahead and check out the pattern below to make these little teddy bears:)

  5. I just made one last night and LOVE the way he came out. I had to play around with some of the stitch counts (when made according to the pattern, the head comes out HUGE, so I omitted a few sets of increases). Very cute teddy bear! ����

  8. Hi! I wanted to let you know that, after signing up for a secret santa exchange for last christmas, I got it in my mind to make tiny Voltron dolls- and I used your pattern as a basis. I modified it of course- longer legs for the taller characters, widened everything and mixed in a dash of your Baymax shape for the bigger character, needle felted hair and improvised on clothes- but I'm really pleased with the whole set, and thought you might get a kick out of seeing them.

    I forgot to take a picture before sending them, but I could share the pictures the recipient shared after receiving them?

  13. I have used another bear pattern for gifts but that one takes a few days to make so I decided to try to find a simplier pattern and found this post. Yesterday I started the bear and I was able to finish it in two hours max. The longest thing was reowrking the pattern. I didn't want to sew the head onto the body so I made the legs, body, and head one continuous piece. I was also afaird that the body would be too small but I think the body using the pattern would of been fine. I am so happy with the results I got. I am going to make a bunch of them for Christmas presents. The first bear I made I put a bow on and it will be a gift to my sister.
