The past few weeks have been a flurry of knitting tiny bears .
I designed these Comfort Bears (also known as ‘Kindness Bears’ , ‘Compassion Bears’ and ‘Blessing Bears’) for people of any age who need to feel loved and comforted.
It was important to me that they fit in a pocket, so they are less than 3 inches tall.
It also felt important that the wee bears be interactive, so I designed their arms to be knitted in one piece, so they could hug the finger of the person who owns them.
They bring me so much joy to make! I hope that those who will be adopting them will feel all the love in each tiny teddy!
I’ve found such joy in making them, so they really do hug back to their maker, as well as whoever will be their owner. 😀
Here’s the link to the pattern so you can knit them, too:
If you don’t knit, but would like to make crocheted comfort bears, here’s the link to the pattern for crocheted comfort bears:
I have been thrilled to hear from people how then intend to use the Blessing Bears.
One woman brought tears to my eyes by telling me that she’s making them to give to her children so they can give them to children at their school who have been bullied.
I’d love to hear who you are making Blessing Bears for….
