Mother Bear Teddy Bears

I knit and crochet, besides quilting. One project I like to do is Mother Bear Project teddy bears. They accept knitted or crocheted teddy bears. I like to crochet my bears, as they go faster, plus I can do amigurumi style ears of various fun colors. 

               
These teddy bears are send to children in Africa, affected by AIDS. Many of them are orphans. Photos of the bears in the arms of their child are posted on the Mother Bear website. Two of my bears recently showed up. This is my 190th teddy bear and it's child!


Baby quilt made with the Urban Abacus pattern and Quick Curve Ruler.

               
And here is my 187th teddy bear, both my original photo and a photo with it's child! 

BTW, to see what 84 teddy bears, with bright colored ears, being sent off at once looks like, go to this post.

If you knit or crochet, consider making a teddy bear, and send a child in need some love! The patterns, both knit and crochet versions, are available here http://motherbearproject.org/pattern.html

Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  1. Such cute bears and how cool that you have made so many! I can crochet a bit, and knit a bit less. I'll have to take a look at the pattern. Wendy at piecefulthoughts@gmail.com

  4. Those bears are adorable. I don't knit or crochet any more, but I do try to make things for charity whenever possible. There are so many needs and not enough time to do them all.
