Crochet Blue Teddy Bear


Mr Blue comes equipped with matching blue cape ready to fly around the town. Mr Blue can also be made in any colour you wish, but this particular bear was a gift for my nephew who is a mad Evertonian so blue was the only colour he wanted.

Mr B was made extra special with the initial of my nephew sewn onto his chest. Personalisation of your projects can turn the special into the extra special.


If you want to start personalising your makes make sure to check out my 'Crochet Letters A-Z' pattern book where you will find the written description along with a video link on how to crochet all the letters in the alphabet.
