Tiny teddy

I have seen these thread bears all over etsy and the internet, and thought it would be fun to give it a try myself. I found a free pattern through ravelry found here: Icicle Mohair Bear and bought some size 10 crochet thread on sale at Joanne's. I used a size 7 hook- that's 1.65 mm (teeny tiny!) and some chocolate brown embroidery floss for the details (his paws, claws, eyebrows and nose).

I had lots of fun seeing this tiny bear come to life, and really enjoyed learning how to make a 5-way thread jointed animal. It's so cool that he is posable! I added a bow for the finishing touch and here's how he turned out:

Please forgive the obscene amount of pictures...I'm just so stinking proud of the way he turned out!
