Notes

I loved doing this project! Susan, the designer at Mary Jane’s Tearoom has been so helpful to me. I did make a few changes; 1) the skirt has a picot edged hem, 2) I didn’t put any bows on the boy bear but instead added some buttons, 3) there are no buttons on the girl bear shoes since this is for my little granddaughter and I didn’t want her to “eat” the buttons, 4) there’s a little red bow on the back of the dress, 5) I made a little change to the collars adding a crocheted picot edging to the girl’s and a row of SC to the boy’s and, 6) I crocheted the eye buttons instead of knitting them.

“Method One” is knitted in the round and is so nice that there are no seams to stitch. The colors I used are from the bear collection from “Method Two”.
