Any young child would love to receive a handmade teddy bear, and Lesley Bousbaine’s Billy and Belinda Buttons from our Summer 2012 Issue are simply adorable. I made one of these cuties for my daughter and completed the crocheting in about a day. The finishing work took one more day because all of the pieces are crocheted separately.
I decided to sew the arms and legs to this teddy’s body and attach decorative buttons instead of functional ones. As you can see, my little girl LOVES her new bear!
You still have time to make one for a special kiddo in your life, so grab your crafting supplies and get started this weekend! Are all of your other handmade gifts finished? We’d love to see pictures of your finished projects, so share them with us on Facebook or email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy holidays!
