I am having so much fun crocheting winter projects! Here I turned my Teddy Bear appliqué into a Polar Bear! The stitch count is a little different so I am posting an entirely new tutorial. I’ll be using this beary-cute guy on the front of a pillow (which I will be sure to post when it’s done.) You could use this for so many projects! I think it would be adorable on the corner of a baby blanket.
