I sighed over this lazy teddy bear from the moment I started learning crochet, but it seemed too difficult to me at that time (completely unjustified). To make it, it is best to use a thicker yarn to create a larger sized mascot. The lazy teddy bear can be a decoration on a child’s bed. It is perfect for this because it does nothing all day but lie around, being…lazy ;). It is also incredibly cute. We managed to take it on a holiday trip last year, so it got to participate in a beautiful photo session with sunsets on the beach. Anyway, see for yourself :). The pattern for the lazy teddy bear is free and very easy. You can choose the sweater colors according to your own preferences.

I have been passionate about DIY since my childhood, and my innate patience and accuracy make the whole process of creation a lot easier for me and that gives me a lot of satisfaction and pleasure. During my first pregnancy I learnt how to sew, what resulted with few tutorials about sewing clothes for kids on the blog. In the beginning of my second maternity leave, I have learned how to crochet amigurumi from yt. I found out, that I really love it, that’s why so many blog posts describe my crochet creatures.
