okay not really - they don't walk anywhere because in this case they don't have anything but a head and a scarf to keep their nonexistent necks warm! HA-HA! But they do look super adorable while they do it and no animals were really hurt in their creation so I say this is a win. LOL Cheesy

A friend of mine has a one year old who is super mobile which equates to everything needing to be baby proofed. She knows I'm crafty and always looking for a challenge so with a bit of banter and deadline confirmation I set to working on whipped up a pattern for each and bringing them to life!

Since they were going on her Christmas tree I wanted it to be a classic northpole theme (less Santa and the Elves in this case Wink). I ended up making at least 3 of each - to give her enough ornaments in the case they didn't add any other ornaments to the tree they'd be able to stand their own Smiley. I also threw in a few crocheted pine cones for good measure.

It was really cool when I brought the ornaments to their house, their lil boy wanted to help put them on the tree - well he gave a brown bear a kiss on the nose Smiley priceless. Those are the moments that make all the crafting worth it, ya know? Smiley

Okay - so pictures, you probably want to see a few huh? Cheesy Thanks for looking and reading! Would love to know what your thoughts are!

What a great idea!  They are adorable and so child-friendly.
I wish I could crochet that well!

These would make such cute presents for next year (and it might take me that long to perfect them)
