My name is Edith Molina. I started making teddy bears in 1989 from synthetic fur and real fur, mainly mink. In 1999 I discovered the thread crochet bears from wonderful artists on eBay and those tiny bears captured my heart! I then sat at my computer for hours with a spool of thread and a crochet hook and tried to figure out how they made them. After so many attempts I finished my first bear. I have made many thread crochet bears since and sold them on ebay. Now I am making the patterns of the bears I design and crochet for others to learn this wonderful art.
This is Artico. A tiny polar bear 2" high, 3" long from nose to tail.
Made with Perle cotton thread #8. He is 5-way thread jointed. His shiny tiny eyes are black onyx beads. His nose is embroidered with black embroidery cotton thread.
The pattern includes complete step-by-step instructions to crochet and assemble the bear, a list of materials and supplies needed and several photos.
