Christmas teddy 1x1

Christmas teddy

It’s December already, snow fell yesterday and Christmas is in a few weeks already. Time for some Christmas amigurumi! I wanted to make something for Christmas for weeks, but I’m so busy these days… Thursday I had some free time so I started to make this teddy and finished it today. This is the first pattern I made for my blog, so I hope you like it. :)

The hat has some stuffing inside and I made a mini pom pom for the top.

I also attached a mini bell.

Without arms…

All parts are done, just need to attach them.

Above is shown how to make the white border for the arm. Make a loop in between the gray and red parts and slip stitch around.

  • Red yarn
  • White yarn
  • *choose color* yarn for the body
  • Stuffing
  • Black beads / safety eyes

Finishing

I made a mini pom pom and attached a little bell right under the head. I find safety eyes too expensive so for the eyes I use black 5mm beads. I bought a bag in Thailand for very cheap, but anywhere in the world, beads would be cheaper than those eyes.

For stuffing I bought the cheapest pillow at IKEA and cut it open. Stuffing is relatively expensive and the cheapest pillow at IKEA has 450g of stuffing for only €2.

    Hi :-) I can’t find you’re email anywhere :-( The teddy is SO cute… Is there any way you would allow me to translate the recipe into danish and put it on my blog? Of course with a link to your original site :-)
