5 Little Monsters: Long Legged Crochet Bear

Long Legged Crochet Bear

This little long legged bear goes along with the bunny that I shared a couple of weeks ago. I mentioned that I would have more animals coming and this is the second one in the series. There will be one more animal, then some accessories to go along with them.  



The bear is made in the same body style as the bunny, long legs worked in one piece with the body and head, with arms and ears sewn on later. The only real difference between the bear and the bunny are the ears. I did go up one size on the eyes that I used for the bear and I think I like the larger size a little bit better. For the bunny I used 8 mm safety eyes, for the bear I used 10 mm. 


Just like the bunny the bear is approximately 13 inches tall from the bottom of the legs to the top of the head.
