Stuffed Bears

These bears are my latest crocheting project for the girls I watch.  The skein next to them is to get an idea of the size.  The pattern is NOT mine, I found it online at The only changes I made (outside of the colors) were to use an H hook, and on the last round in the arms I did 4 sc st, turned, then did the remaining 4 sc in the previous st’s causing the top of the arm to be longer.  I feel this allows the arms to hang a bit more naturally on the bears.  I’ve decided to let the girls choose whether they want button eyes and nose for the bears or not, as I think it’s cute both ways.

I’m thinking about making some mittens or finger-less gloves next, what with the weather changing and all (the other morning it was 5 degrees celsius out!  I don’t even know what that is in fahrenheit, but I was cold bicycling to the kindergarten!)  Anyone have any good patterns to suggest?
