The Three Bears

Designed by Ana Araujo

I was searching for an easy teddy bear pattern so that I could make The Three Bears for a baby show. I found this one on Pinterest at AP Country Crafts. Lindsay designed this pattern for a memory bear using out grown baby cloths. I thought this was the prefect pattern for my Three Bears project. Please visit her website to download the pattern: http://pacountrycrafts.com/baby-clothes-memory-bear-pattern-and-tutorial/
