This is my newest project, and it’s TO DIE FOR.
I am so happy with it.
You will love it and want it for yourself too. I’ve had a picture of it saved in a folder since I saw it on someone else’s blog last year. I was looking through my crochet stuff and came across it again on Saturday. I swooned. I stared at it for a long time. I wanted it. So I went through my crochet patterns and looked online, and I came up with a suitable pattern by combining and tweaking a few I found that were similar. I had a heck of a time getting it right, but I finally did. I can’t wait to show it to you, but it’s not quite finished yet. Soon, I promise!
Here’s a peek at my polar bear…
He still has no arms or legs, but isn’t he cute? I made the nose and mouth by sewing black yarn on his muzzle instead of a button. I got it a little crooked (okay, A LOT), but that’s okay. It gives him character, right? I am a terrible seamstress. I sew like a first-grader.
I went swimming with my mom on Friday morning, and then we had lunch at the clubhouse dining room where she lives. We had a nice visit and got some exercise too.
Other than a little crochet, my weekend was very uneventful. I didn’t feel very well so I didn’t leave the house and spent a good amount of time sleeping. But I wasn’t alone…
