Pattern Description:

Gerry is one of my favorite patterns: he's everything I love about the teddy bear I had growing up! He's big and cuddly, adorable, and most important for kids- incredibly durable.

This bear is crocheted and then felted- but if you haven't felted before, don't worry! He's actually a great first felting pattern because you really can't mess up! These pieces don't need to fit anyone- so it's impossible to overfelt- and step-by-step instructions are included in the pattern.

And because Gerry is felted- he's super-thick and tough (but still soft! Isn't he amazing?)

So, what are you waiting for? Join the ranks of the 'felters' today!
