Graduation Teddy Amigurumi

A recently made friend just graduated with a Doctorate of Nursing. What does a doctor need? A teddy bear, of course. :)...Ok, it just came to my attention that this Doctor loves pink and my friend's finance's daughter doesn't like pink but is good with brown so that bears have switched owners. :)

I used Stephanie's very cute free Graduation Teddy pattern. I didn't change anything on her pattern (O.o) except the colors of the appendages. I also added poly pellets to the body for more weight and part of a toilet paper roll to the inside of the bottom of the graduation cap to give it more body. :)

I love his cute little bootie. :)

Yarn: Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in Oatmeal and Chocolate
3.75mm crochet hook
Safety eyes: 12mm animal eyes
Muzzle: Brown felt and tan embroidery floss
Poly pellets and Nature-fill Polyfill

Graduation cap: 
Yarn: Lion Bran Vanna's Choice in "Black"
Stuff black felt
Toilet paper cardboard roll

Congratulations to all those who are Graduating this year!!! Good Job! It's the end of a chapter in your education, now to start the next chapter! :) Party while you can! :)

Stephanie, the sweet designer of the pattern, commented that she really liked the variegated yarn I used. Just as I was responding back that the color of the yarn is called Oatmeal, I decided to name the bear Oatmeal. So, his name is now officially, Oatmeal! :)

    1. Thank you so much Helen. :) I just started doing 3D crocheting just this year so it has been a learning curve. :)
