Ballerina Bear


For my ballerina!

I love how this little bear has on toe shoes and a little tutu! I am totally smitten by making these little animals.

From time to time, during the progress of making this bear, my daughter would come and ask to see how it looked. When I finished it and took it to her she paid me the highest compliment..."teach me!" Her summer break starts in just one more school day.

Now that my ballerina bear is done I really MUST get back to working on my Christmas stocking for my new niece. It's one of those felt/sequin/bead/embroidery kits.

For info on the patterns I've been using for my crochet animals: Itty Bitty Animals (Annie's Attic: Crochet) by Shelia Leslie. I think I'll make a monkey next!
