-El patrón para MOCHILA/TAPETE DE OSO A CROCHET PARA VIAJAR esta escrito en español

This pattern makes the ultimate travel bear mat. You can make the panda bear version or the brown bear/teddy bear version. It’s perfect to watch tv & play video games on, read, nap, relax & even sleep on! The most exciting part for kids is that it rolls right up and turns into a backpack so you can travel with it. Also, they can roll a little blanket up with it and use their mat at sleep overs! It is very detailed and there are pictures throughout to make things easy to understand. With these detailed instructions, even those with little crochet experience can find success creating their own masterpiece!
