A bear face square?? Cute but…
This will probably be the only square in my 101 Crochet Squares book that I won’t complete. Not that I don’t like it. I LOVE IT!! But unless I make about 49 more, what will I do with it.
So… here’s my solution. Make the bear faces and put them on other things. Like this little girl’s purse I created just to put this on.
I have 2 more faces started. They all need eyes and a mouth.
I have lots of ideas for these bears. Attach a strand of “something” and make into a necklace. Dangle from a key chain. Put on the front of a hat. Add a bunch together to make a garland. Would look cute hanging on the wall in a child’s room.
Lion Brand 100% cotton in Espresso (dark brown) & Cloves (medium brown).
Bear, 3 1/4″ not including the ears
Purse, 6″ by 6 1/2″
Strap, 29″ (ch 101 to start)
