Ahh little Abu Bear. I made this for my friend’s daughter (Annabel, Abu for short). It was one of my first attempts at Amigurumi. Honestly I had no idea how easy Amigurumi could be. There are some amazing tutorials on You Tube. Sharon Ojala of www.amigurumitogo.com is absolutely brilliant, she takes you through every step of the way. Her You Tube video for this bear can be found here
I’ve added my own little ‘embroidery” badge. I use the word embroidery in very loose terms indeed – my Grandmother will be turning in her grave. I love this kind of naive hand stitched look to make presents that little bit more personal.
