Festive Christmas Teddy Bear Crochet Pattern

I am excited to release to you today my festive Christmas Teddy Bear. At the beginning of the year, I knew I wanted to design a Christmas theme bear around the holidays! It doesn’t take much to make this holiday-themed bear.

Design Inspiration

When I think of celebrating the holidays with my children, I always think of giving them a new holiday bear for that year. It was a tradition that dates back to my childhood. Each Christmas, I would receive a new Christmas bear as one of my presents as a child. I try to carry that tradition on with my children. Some years, my husband and I do this tradition, and other times it doesn’t always happen.

So I thought, why not design a new Christmas bear for each year and share that with my followers. I hope you enjoy this first holiday bear I have designed. You can purchase this pattern by clicking the following links to my Etsy Store and Ravelry Shop. I hope you enjoy the pattern.
