Crochet Pattern: Teddy Bear Applique

Posted in Free Crochet Patterns on March 6th, 2013 by Emilee Gettle – 2 Comments
Each week my five year old daughter watches me create a project for Crochet Spot. Oftentimes she is the source of my inspiration. For a couple weeks now she has been begging me to crochet a teddy bear for her. Any kind of teddy bear was her request. So, this week I made this appliqué to add to one of her shirts. She has already put in another request for a pink one next time. This pattern is really easy and can be adjusted several ways. You can change the muzzle color to a slightly darker or lighter shade, add beads or french knots for the eyes. Have fun! You can also find more applique patterns in the Applique Section!

I have always loved St. Patrick’s Day. My mom would make corned beef, sauerkraut, and all the traditional foods for our American way of celebrating our Irish heritage. While the food was delicious it was also a milestone in the year, which meant spring was right around the corner! After a long winter I was always more than ready to see my tulips again. This week I created this Leprechaun Top Hat Appliqué so you can start embellishing your linens or making pins for your friends. This is also a great project for adding a “touch of Irish” to kid’s clothes or hair accessories.

It seems like I’m on a roll with a Valentine theme. I love quick projects that can be made in a jiffy and that can be used multiple ways. This week’s Valentine XO (or hugs and kisses) appliqué can be used for so many projects. You could use it for scrapbooking or making handmade cards. You could also make several, join them together, and create a cute trim. You could also join them into a headband. It’s also great in pastel colors for sprucing up baby gifts. The sky is the limit with this ultra-easy project. If you are new to fingering yarn this pattern is perfect.

In just a few short weeks it will be time to get the kids back to school! Have you seen all the school supplies flooding into the aisle at the stores? As a kid I was always excited by the back to school goodies. I couldn’t wait to crack open that new box of crayons and take a big whiff of their wonderful waxy aroma. You can’t forget the smell of a pencil being sharpened, no matter how long it has been since you were sitting behind a desk. So, this week, I pulled out my fingering yarn and crocheted this pencil bookmark to keep your place!

My family and I love vintage clothing. On the weekend you can find us at an antique store or estate sale. While my husband snatches up old tools, I like to sift through boxes, baskets and trunks of old linens. Years ago clothing, quilts and even dishtowels were an art form! Crocheted appliques are a quick and easy way to embelish and personalize your linens. The time commitment is slim to none. It’s a project with instant gratification! This week I created a little mushroom for you to add to your children’s clothing, linens or to make a bobby pin with!
