Now, it is time to share my experience with these mini crochet bears with you guys!
Let me tell you how I almost pulled my hair out with frustration trying to work with such small needle and thread, failing many times trying to make a smaller teddy bear. I felt so defeated and was on the verge of giving up. Luckily, with some helpful tips from my very talented friend, Christine from Dandelion Fair, I was able to do it! Thank you Christine!
I learned that you have to use patterns that are specially made for miniature scale or else it won't work. They were quite challenging, but well worth it!
I used a pattern that I modified a little for both teddy bears and they turned out absolutely adorable. Best of all, they have movable joints!
For the first bear, which I named Abby, I used a size 10 crochet thread and a crochet needle size 1 mm.

I'm still trying to make a smaller teddy bear and experimenting with different patterns. Please wish me luck!
Also, I'm thinking of including a mini crochet bear as one of the prize items for my 100 follower giveaway. What do you think? Yes, no, maybe?? ;-) If I get a lot of YES, there is something to look forward to for that 100th follower! :-)
