Handmade Amigurumi / Teddy Bears by Knitting Dreams
Teddy bears, named after President Theodore Roosevelt, have been around in the U.S. and elsewhere for a long time. I still have my favorite panda bear from my childhood, and even had him refurbished a few years ago along with my Drowsy and Raggedy Ann dolls at a wonderful doll's hospital here in Houston.
And here, from Etsy seller Knitting Dreams, is a wonderful selection of handmade amigurumi and miniature teddy bears that are just right for Christmas stockings! Have you ever seen anything sweeter than the little panda shown above? This little guy is about 3.5 inches tall and 2 inches wide, and is one of the many custom designs that Knitting Dreams makes to order. The sizes vary slightly (some are close to 4 inches high), but all are well within the perfect size range for stocking stuffers. Take a look at the entire selection, and remember that if you don't see exactly what you're looking for, you should just ask! There are sweet enough for children, yet special enough for adults. Nobody is too old for a teddy bear!
