Me and my mom each crocheted and assembled a bear. We used buttons for eyes that turned out cute, but our next project we will use the animal eyes. We always like to add a little flair usually bows to add personality. The ears and neck turned out slighlty different from the pattern. I feel Cinnamon's neck is a little long and her ears are too pointed. She's a Catear ( Cat Bear)😉! It was easier to follow this pattern after we made the bird!
