Rolly Polly Flat Teddy Bear

After I designed the tiny knitted comfort bears, LINK , people asked for crocheted comfort bears. LINK.

Then, people asked me for woven comfort bears, and I started sketching and drawing .

The drawings that really delighted me were for a ~flat~ teddy bear, all round and rolly polly. So, I have designed this dear little flat teddy bear to be woven on weaving sticks or peg looms.

A ~FLAT~ Teddy Bear?! Seriously? Yes!

The Rolly Polly Flat Bear is a charming little teddy bear that is meant to be small, because it’s one of my series of comfort bears.  So it fits in the palm of your hand, or in a pocket.

Because it’s small and flat, it can go everywhere.

Rolly Polly Flat Bear can be stitched to a hat or a bag or have a pin stitched to it’s back and be worn as a pin or whatever you can imagine.

It can also be popped into an envelope and mailed to a friend.

Being a very little Rolly Polly Flat Bear is a good thing- it’s so easy to have adventures when you are small and flat.

And,  Rolly Polly Flat Bears are especially good for teddy bear makers, since they are so easy to make.

You can make different sizes of the Rolly Polly Flat Bears by using different sizes of weaving sticks and different thicknesses of yarn.

I’ve decided to make Rolly Polly Flat Bears for our Christmas tree and for all our friends and relations’ Christmas trees, too.

I hope that you will have fun weaving Rolly Polly Flat Bears, and please do take pictures and share them to show what your Rolly Polly Flat Bears have gotten up to!

Here’s the link to my etsy shop for the pattern:

The adventures of 2 travelling bears-1

One of our son’s closest friends, Paul, decided to move to another city to go to school.

So, our son and his wife and another of their dear friends, (Mike), decided to drive Paul to his new city.

They loaded up their van with Paul’s possesions and came out to the farm to spend the night before ‘take off’.

As I watched them preparing for the journey, I had the sudden impulse to ask Paul if he would like a travelling comfort bear to keep him company on his great adventure.

He said- Yes, please!

Luckily, I have a stash of them, crocheted from the designs in my book: Crocheted Teddy Bears (link)

Mike was also open to adopting a teddy, so he chose one, too….

Soon, the Intrepid Travellers were all packed and ready to head out down the road, over the mountains to the Coast…..

The van was loaded right to the gills, so the bears decided to check the air pressure on the tires….

They declared it to be acceptable.

All hatches  battened… and the team prepared for a good night’s sleep and an early morning departure….

Further adventures of Team Paul and  The Amazing Travelling Bears to be continued….
