Molly's Teddy Bear

This is the teddy bear that I made for my daughter's friend Molly for her birthday.  I probably would have chosen a different color, but I let my daughter pick out the yarn and she liked the combination of the purples, greens and white. The yarn I used is Red Heart Super Saver in Grape Ivy.

Molly loves her teddy bear and decided to name it Carly. :)

If you'd like to make one yourself you can find the pattern on Ravelry here.  The pattern was a little confusing in a few places, but if you have any experience with making amigurumi crochet animals you can probably figure it out fairly quickly.  I modified the pattern slightly and eliminated the flower as well as the buttons on the arms and legs.

Ellie's Baby Elephant

Lately my daughter has been invited to several birthday parties.  Instead of buying her friends gifts I let her pick out a stuffed animal pattern and I've made them.

This is the baby elephant I made for my daughter's friend Ellie.  I found the pattern for free on Ravelry here if you'd like to make one yourself.  It's a pretty quick pattern if you're familiar with amigurumi crocheted patterns. It could be made in pretty much any color you like.  Ellie's was made with Red Heart Super Saver yarn in Lt. Blue.
