In the Hoop Bear Lovie


Flat bear for babies to grab, cuddle and love


This cute flat bear gives babies something soft to cuddle and love.
It can be made using a variety of soft fabrics. You can use a combination of flannel, gauze, Cuddle®, waffle weave, fleece and soft terry cloth.
The choices are up to you.

The bear is included in 2 sizes. The bears finish to approximately the hoop sizes minus the arms and legs.
No lettering or additional embroidery to embellish is included. The birth announcement template is from here.

The arms and legs are made in the hoop first and are stitched in when the bear is being constructed.

Our samples show the bear stitched in Cuddle®, Solid Embrace® and 16 Ounce Terry Cloth (on the back of the silver bear)

On one sample we used Crinkle Material to create a noise when touched. Check out this video.
