Besides sewing presents, I've done a little knitting. This cute little knit polar bear is fun little ornament. Mine is 2 1/2 inches. The bear's head flips back and reveals a little pocket made in the bear's body. Just right to hide a little note or a treasure. One of the bears I knit up is part of a Christmas Day Treasure Hunt.
The bear is also just the right size for a pocket book for a Bamboletta Cuddle Doll! Tulip (my "borrower--she is wearing a smaller doll's socks and a bigger doll's leggings) immediately claimed the second one I made as her own!
The "Polar Bear Pouch" is the creation of Barbara Prime who publishes patterns as Fuzzy Mitten's. This pattern is available, free, on Ravelry.com. Barbara designs delightful knit animals and her patterns are easy to follow.
Enjoy your time with friends and family over the next few weeks!
