Fold bear in half and sew seam starting at the bottom of one foot, go up and around leaving between legs open for stuffing.  Turn bear right side out, stuff starting at head,  arms, then body, and legs.  Neatly stitch leg opening closed.  Draw up neck with yarn and tie in a triple knot - add bow and sew securely. 

EARS: they are just part of the head and need to be stitched in with yarn.  You just stitch across like a corner, to form a triangle,  on each side of the head and pull it a little bit to make the ears. 

(Bevs note: I made a bow using 2 yarns, and I made a chain of 45. I also added the little face above with a black nose-- The eyes and nose are just stitched on with black yarn using a yarn needle.  I think I went back and forth 2 or 3 times for the eyes, 4 times for nose, and the mouth is just 1 stitch down from nose and then one stitch to the left, and one to the right.  I pulled the yarn through to the back of the neck and did 3 little stitches, or you could tie a knot.  The bow will cover it.The ears I just did a couple of gathering stitches where the ears are, using the same color yarn.)

LDS Missionary bear

Meet LDS Missionary Bear!
This little guy is perfect to make for friends who have a son on a mission, maybe for the missionary himself, or for your little ones to take as a quiet toy for Church.

The bear was made using White Simply Soft, number 4 needles.  He has a blue neck tie that was made with a 6" long single crochet chain.  And a black badge that is merely stitched with 3 sts of black yarn.


Thease adorable bears were knitted by Linda Martin!  They all end up being given to someone who needs a small bear-friend.  Thanks for sharing Linda!
