2019 is almost over and so is Treasure the Teddy crochet challenge, which lasted the entire year. We decided to make one teddy bear every month, each time in a different color scheme for which I made an inspiration board. Our goal was to have a unique collection of 12 teddy bears in the end of the year and I am super happy for myself that I have completed my goal!!! It wasn`t always easy, but now that I see them all on one photo my heart simply jumps of joy!
My personal goal was to make all teddies from yarns I already have and not to buy any new material. It went quite well, because I only bought new yarn for 2 of the teddies.
The bears turned out very different in size, because each month I used a different yarn. The smallest one (September) is only 16 cm / 6.3 in. At the same time the biggest one (February) measures 27 cm / 10.6 in.
On the photos below you`ll see the teddy bears selected by seasons. Aren`t they all so different.
Now that Treasure the Teddy challenge is over, I have two huge questions to solve. First I need to decide what to do with all those bears. I´d like to use them for the charity somehow, but haven`t yet figured out the best way to do this.
And the other thing is – me and lots of other crocheters want to have a new and inspiring challenge at 2020 too, so I must prepare something new very soon. I have a couple of ideas, but the crochet along probably won`t start before March.
