Working Out Bear

You must be fed up with all the reports of me feeling unwell but I've now upgrade the virus to flu and thats why its taking so long to for it to clear up and my energy levels are pants at the moment. I also advise not to make anything while sick because I made this poor bear or to me he still looks like a mouse.
I found the pattern in the Love Crochet magazine, it was going well till I realised I didn't have the right size eyes which help to make him mouse like.
Then I stitched him together and tidy up the ends, I couldn't work out what was wrong. He was very butch looking, like he had been working out and had broad shoulders.
Oops I've sewn his body upside down.

Hubby has started to worry that this crochet animals are starting to take over the house, with another mouse and a pig made. I'm now on a very strange looking Giraffe.


  1. He's so cute Debby hope you'll soon feel better


  2. Think of it this way....... he's cute and unique! Hope you feel better soon. xx

  3. I do hope you shake it off quickly Debby, so many people seem to be struggling the same way and say it drains them.

    Bear or mouse he's very sweet, perhaps he's a bear who has been on a diet ?

  7. Hi,
    I think that he is really cute, and who is anyone to say what is right and what is wrong, I am sure that any child and the person who made it will love him to bits. I know what you mean about hubby worrying, I make Teddy Bears, havent tried to crochet one, but hubby reckons we are going to have to start putting them outside as there is no room inside. He,he. I am going to finish one shortly and then see what he says, bet you it will be put out on display and not hidden away, so I wouldn't worry if I were you.
    Anyway I think he is wonderful.
    I hope you have a fantastic day, and are well soon.
    Love and best wishes.

  8. Oh Debby you did make me smile with your upside down body although I am sure I would never have noticed if you hadn't said - he is adorable and I would be thrilled if I could make anything half as good as this!! Hope you get over you flu soon, hugs Susan x

    1. Oh, Debby, you make me laugh with your animal descriptions. I think they're adorable, and I have a big urge to cuddle them all!

  11. I think he looks cute. I wouldn't have known his body was upside down unless you pointed it out. :)
    I used to crochet the stuffed animals also, but just make cards or scrapbook layouts now.
    I sure hope you are over the flu soon and start feeling better. Take care of yourself.

  12. He is so cute Debby and who cares if his body is upside down! So sorry you are still feeling the effects of the flu but hopefully it won't be long before you are feeling your old self. I think we all need some nice warm sunshine which hopefully isn't too far away. x
