Is it too early for a Holiday themed blog post? I hope not because two very sweet darlings want me to ask you what do you think they should expect to find in their Christmas stockings this year.This is the naughty little Holiday bear. See that troubled expression on his face? That’s because he’s been naughty throughout the year, giving his mama a hard time. Now that Christmas is approaching, he’s worried he’s going to end up with a lump of coal in his stocking.This cheerful fella, on the other hand, has been really nice this year and he is excited to see what Santa will bring for him. Personally he’d prefer a 3D printer but he knows Santa’s elves don’t do 3D printer because promoting that kind of technology would practically leave them jobless.
While these two Naughty and Nice Holiday Bears chalk up their wish list, I’ll let you into a secret—I cheated while making these amigurumis! Now that I have your undivided attention, let me explain. Both these amigurumi bears have been designed in such a way that they can be out on display throughout the year, and not just on Christmas. Since they do not come in traditional Christmas colors as you must have noticed, all you need to do is remove their hats and scarves and hide away their stockings and they are good for any season 😀 And now, it’s time for some free goodies! Who wants free patterns for these amigurumi Holiday Bears? Each of these two PDFs contain crochet patterns for the bear, its hat and scarf, and a miniature Christmas stocking.
