Granny Teddy.........

Hi there!
How has your week started? Have you got a busy one planned or nice and cruisey like us still on school holidays? We are going to be doing a few things for the second last week of the holidays, and my niece is coming for a couple of nights, so it should go pretty quickly. My sister is about to have her baby any time this week, so it is all quite exciting!

Here is the latest addition to my granny animal toys, he is supposed to be a teddy but has turned out a bit ambiguous! I just keep telling myself he's a teddy, and that it takes all types of teddies to make this world, he's just a less pretty version of teddyness!

Had to unpick the face several times, as getting the colour combos right and my stitching neat took some time, I ended up using a 4ply for the embroidery as my usual 8ply looked too chunky.

I am so enjoying making these guys, I have nearly finished another one, I'll show you all tomorrow, although you are all probably sick of seeing softies! Sorry, but I have still got a few more to try out yet!

Have a great day!


  1. OMG, this guy is so cute! I've never thought of granny-ing a teddy. My little boy is almost 6weeks old and I haven't even thought of making him a teddy yet!

  2. I love all your little Granny animals! They are so beautiful and fun!

  3. nope, not sick of, in admiration of.

    Theyre brilliant.


  4. Oh this one is also cute! I love your granny animals :-) Have a nice week!

  5. Oh, die ziet er ook weer geweldig uit. Vraag me niet welke van de 3 ik het leukste vind, ik zou het niet kunnen zeggen. Super

  6. That is so cute and funny what a fab way of using a granny square - clever you.

  7. He/she is one of the bestest bears around!!!I would love him myself, and i'm well past my childhood days! Would never get sick of your granny softies, they are unique, clever and gorgeous. Keep making, and showing.

  8. This is one of the most fun, creative and inspiringly crocheted pieces I've seen in a while. Kudos to you on a job well done!

  9. Adorable just so colourful and him
    Thanks for sharing such a cutie
