Spring Bear CAL – Part 5

Welcome back for Part 5 of the Spring Bear Crochet Along! Today we will be tackling the Dress and appliques for the bear CAL. If you missed any of the other parts, then you can find the CAL schedule and those links below. I have decided not to go live anymore unless someone posts a question or I want to show you a certain type of stitch. Please come over to Creative Snugglies Designs Facebook Community to share your photos and ask any questions you may have. I always love seeing people’s photos of their project.
