Amigurumi Pattern: Kuma’s Bear Family

 Welcome Kuma Family !

We are in the month of May and the bears come out of their caves to start a new cycle 🙂
Our little Kuma has grown up during her hibernation and has become a beautiful and tender Bear Mom! ♥ ♥ ♥ … Next to Kuma, come their little suns to be part of this great family!

A year ago Kuma came to our lives with her friends Neko, Buta and Nezumi, our Kawaii Keychains… In this time she has grown up to become a great Bear Mom ♥ … Together, with her three little ones they spend the days enjoying of nature, learning and playing until the moment of hibernation comes again.

Next you will find the pattern, and also the option to download the PDF, more detailed and to archieve with your pattern collection – Remember that with the download, which is totally free, you are collaborating with Tarturumies, giving us the possibility to continue creating free patterns to share with you all.

NOTE 3: If you want more firmness to support the head of Kuma, at the time of sewing it to the body place a wire (suitable for amigurumis) with its tips bent to avoid hurting us. Place part in the body and part in the head, then continue sewing until closing the neck.
