My grandmother, Bernice, was an avid collector of unique teddy bears. When she passed away in 1997 I became the proud beneficiary of the collection that brought her so much joy. Every Christmas I display them on my rustic piano with candles and holiday decor. The little bears seem to come to life and bring my family the very same happiness.
The idea for Princess Bernadette Bear was born from my love of my grandmother and her teddies. Bernadette is sweet, statuesque and simple! I created her with the beginner in mind. The only prerequisite skills are being able to make a magic ring, single crochet, and double crochet.
I also made three videos to help with sections that beginners might find tricky –
- Princess Bernadette Bear Tutorial for Joining Snout
- Princess Bernadette Bear Tutorial for Making Legs

I hope you all enjoy Princess Bernadette Bear as much as I enjoyed creating her!! She has been professionally tech edited and pattern tested by several talented crocheters!
