Gunny Bear

Project Description

What was your inspiration? Stacey Trock's woodland animals course on Craftsy was my source for the design. And I wanted to make a bear friend for my best friend's daughter, whose daddy is deploying with the Marines for 6 to 7 months. Her daddy is a Gunnery Sergeant (E-7), hence Mr. Bear's new name...Gunny Bear. :-D

What you will need

  • Crochet Hook G/4mm (military bag) & H/5mm for bear; Annie's Hook & Needle Club DK weight yarn (Turquiose)
  • Caron Simply Soft Light (Black & Heavy Cream); Red Heart Desert Sand Camo Medium weight yarn; 10 mm safety eyes (Black); small piece of pink felt for tongue; dab of Beacon Felt Glue
