˚PDF Pattern˚ The Owen Snuggly Bear Pattern

My little nephew was born a few weeks ago and I wanted to make him something special. (You have to compete to be the favorite aunt when there are four others wanting the favorite-aunt-ever award). I know most kids have a favorite blanket, but frankly, they seem too big to lug around everywhere. So, I created the Owen Snuggly Bear. The Mr. likes to call him the ghost bear. As long as he admits that it is an adorable, cuddly, fuzzy ghost bear, I am fine with that!

Isn't he adorable?

 I thought so too!

 Makes me want to snuggle up with him and read a good book.

And since my little nephew isn't the only one who deserves a little snuggle buddy, I've created a PDF pattern found here with over 30 pages of instruction full of detailed descriptions and tons of pictures. While some sewing experience is a plus, the instructions are detailed for even the most beginner sewers.

This little bear snuggly measures approximately 18" x 18" when complete and makes the perfect companion for any little one. The small size makes it easy to fit inside a diaper bag or purse. With minky on one side and 100% polyester satin on the other, the Owen Bear Snuggly is as soft as can be. Machine washable. 

Materials needed:

1/4 yd.* soft minky fabric (if your fabric is less than 50” wide, you will need 1/2 yd.)
1/2 yd.* coordinating fabric (I used 100% polyester satin)
1 yd. thin ribbon that matches coordinating fabric
Batting (I used 100% polyester)
Black embroidery thread
Needle and thread
Cutting Mat (optional)

*you may wish to purchase and extra inch or two just to be safe.

So, hop on over to etsy and check him out here! In the meantime, the little Owen Snuggly Bear I made will be on its way to some love....and slobber....the best kind of baby lovin'!
