Evolution of Miniature Teddy Bears

Adding two new friends to the miniature teddy bear family. Meet Cookie and Mocha.

Hello everyone! Meet Cookie and Mocha!

Cookie is 38 mm tall when standing and 30 mm when sitting. On the other hand, Mocha is 34 mm tall when standing and 22mm when sitting.  Only 4 mm height difference because of Mocha's long legs, but Mocha is about 25 % smaller than Cookie.

Below is a photo of all of my bears lined up in the order that I made, and they're getting smaller and smaller. Also, I'm getting better at making them too, so I thought  it would be fun to call it "the evolution of miniature teddy bears"!


Evolution!

I'm glad to say that I'm getting a hang of crocheting in such small scale using only 0.6 mm crochet needle, but I still find it to be challenging and I still get frustrated at times. I've recently purchased some smaller hooks with 0.4 mm being the smallest. You have to literally put it right in front of your eyes to actually see the hook; it's that small and it looks so daunting! But I'm determined to make a smaller teddy bear using this sized crochet needle some day. I'm still working my way up there, so wish me luck!

0.4 mm crochet needle!
