MEET FUZZY ....

{FUZZY the 1st and FUZZY the 2nd ...}



It was a long weekend here in South Africa, with Friday, 9 August being
Womens' Day.  So I had some quality time on hand to try something new on the crochet front.  I discovered this lovely free crochet Teddy pattern in a Facebook Group and had to try it out.
Fuzzy the 1st made her appearance into the world via a very painful birth and forceps had to be used during the birth process ... there her little face is a bit disformed, but I am sure she will be showered by love and transform into a pretty little princess.


Fuzzy the 1st's little brother was then born and Fuzzy the 2nd's birth was less painful.  I am sure you will agree that he is a bit more handsome than his elder sister Fuzzy the 1st.


The FREE pdf PATTERN can be downloaded from Ravelry here.
