"Today's the day the Teddy Bears have their picnic"
First of all I want to thank everyone for taking part and making this challenge a success . I never imagined it would take off the way it did .
Special thanks to Gypsycream for all the help and advice she has given over the last month .I couldn't have done it without her .
I was going to make twin bears but someone beat me to it (EFerg ) ,so my contribution to the challenge is triplets !!
Polar Bear triplets .
Left to Right :-
Snowflake bear made with Sirdar Boa ,
Snowball bear made with Peterpan Cupcake and
Snowdrop bear made with Stylecraft Gypsy .
I wanted to show the variation made just by changing the yarn used .
They have all been made by using Gypsycreams Huggable Bear pattern available on Craftsy.com
My contribution to the picnic is Hairy Harry. He was made with Kuka Supersoft Fur from Yarn Paradise. US size 4 needles, eyes from www.suncatchereyes.com
. Thanks so much to Gypsycream for her wonderful patterns.
Lucky allyt is away on holiday in Tenerife and has asked me to add her bear .
Bella Bear ,unknowm eyelash yarn bought at a charity shop
MzBarnz has also gone away to the beach !!! Lucky lady
William Bear has been made using Bernat Boucle in grey with black tones .
She says "He is squishy soft .His eye placement seems to give Him a confused expression and I kind of like that lol . Can't wait to make His Sister !!
This little boy is actually a Huggable Bear. To ring the changes I knitted his feet paw pads, muzzle and ears in a soft chenille, the rest of him is in Wicked Ostrich Feather yarn by Estella (bought on Ebay). Knitted on 3.5mm needles, 13mm eyes.
He is now on his way to Spain to give a very dear friend who is suffering from cancer and very big hug :D
All of these bears are great and very huggable but my favorite its the one made by alysonclark...I think it is Snowball the one in the middle on your first Pic Alyson...he is really adorable and looks totally cuddly...really wish I could make me one but I can't knit that well yet....one of these days though I will....
Here is my bear. He (she?) is made with Sirdar Snuggly Tiny Tots and a regular dk white.
I think I should have used a 4ply for the contrast so his nose wasn't so big and make him look like a fox.
Love all the bears already at the picnic.
He should go off to Australia. He was made for my great niece. I'm not sure I am happy enough for tht to happen.
Lion Brand Fun Fur magenta and white. The pattern is Huggable the ears are Ruby's. US#4 needles. The necklace is an IDIC. It stands for Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations. I think that describes the participants and the attendees of the picnic
Two Huggable Bears and 1 Need a Hug bear. All made from Lion Brand Fun Fur. I found that 3 balls was sufficient for me for the Huggable Bears, but I needed 4 balls for the Need a Hug pattern. Somehow my bodies got bigger. I have another Need a Hug bear coming using the Sandstone color fur. His name will be Miele Orso (Honey Bear).
Here is the trio of bears made so far.
Caro Figlio (Beloved Son)
Rame Lucido (Shiney Copper)
I have two additions to the Teddy Bear's Picnic. Both of my bears are from Gypsycream's Huggable Bear pattern. My first bear is made using Simply Soft yarn by Caron, in the color of Bone, and size 8 needles. Not she is very tall, and was my present for my Mom on Mother's Day. :) Her nose is embroidered on with embroidery thread, and the pads of her feet are felt. Her eyes are safety eyes from Jo Anne's, and I knitted her a simple scarf as well.
My second bear was just finished this evening, and I chose to use some of my complimentary quilting material on her feet. Her nose and muzzle have some satin stitch embroidery. Her safety eyes are from Jo Anne's. My sister has already put her bid in for what she terms "the Rasta bear" :D
A super big thanks to Gypsycream, and all of her patient help for those of us who have been creating the bears.
She also was made on size 8 needles using Loops and Thread's yarn from Michaels in color Southwest Ombre
These 5 Bears are of the Huggable and Pocket Bear variety, The 2 Huggable ones are in a Chenille and the other a Lincaft Entice (Local Brand) knitted with 3.25 mm needles. The Pocket Bears - the one is an Eyelash wool, the other from Donated wool - brand unkown. The small Pocket Bear had a premature Birth so is very small and has poor vision due to the oxygen given at birth Lol!! These 5 are off to a Charity! Thanks to Gypsycream for her wonderful patterns, we love them!!

Need a Hug Bear
Teddy Bear Picnic
They are all just beautiful, who could not love a TEDDY BEARS PICNIC
Here is my contribution - Petra Bear here for the picnic - made in Lincraft All-sorts. Had a bit of a problem as there was no batch number on the balls and some knit up thicker than others and in a slightly different shade. Still, managed to work with that and reasonably happy with the result. Great pattern - thanks Gypsycream for the clear instructions.
