Baby Bear
Monday, November 06, 2006

Baby BearI made a bear last night. It's for my cousin's daughter, who now has a baby brother. I don't know why I care, but I always feel bad for the older kid who is no longer the only child and gets pushed out of the limelight by the newcomer. It's weird I should think like that, considering I, myself, am "the baby". I was the third child and the first girl of my generation in my family. I don't think my brother ever fully recovered.

So, in the box is the blanket for the new baby boy and the bear for the big sister. The bear was made using the pattern from Kids Crochet: Projects for Kids of All Ages. It's one of my favorite crochet books. The projects are simple, single crochet is the only stitch used throughout, but the photography and illustration make this book pleasing to look at and the projects are super cute. I want to make the snail pillow for my couch. I modified the bear pattern a little bit, because I can't follow directions to a T anyway. And you can see how the little pink nose is crooked. I can't embroider for shit. But is a two year old really going to care? Nope.
