FO Friday - A Bear and a Hippo

So that bear I mentioned a few weeks ago, the one that I optimistically thought I had two months to finish...turns out I had significantly less time than I thought to finish it. The baby shower ended up being scheduled for today and I still had to do a third stuffed animal too. So I knitted pretty much nonstop during my free time over the last couple of weeks (hence the lack of updates lately.)

The good news is I managed to finish! Here is Brown Bear.

The pattern is baby bear from Susan Anderson's Itty Bitty Toys book.

For the third stuffed animal I ended up doing a hippo to go with The Belly Button Book. This pattern is also from the same book - can I just say how much I love this book!


I think these will be a hit with the moms to be. Here is a pic of all three stuffed animals.


For more finished object Friday fun check out Tami's Amis!



  1. Awww cute Hippo. I love knitted stuffed animal =)

  2. !!!
    I love them ♥
    I have that same book and have the hippo in my queue, he's so round and loveable! But I never thought Baby Bear would be this cute- I couldn't see past the variegated yarn she used in the original.
    I think you had a wonderful idea, making little toys to go with children's books. If I were one of the new mommy's I'd be so touched- They will love it!

  3. The HIPPO is adorable! He has such a personality. Nicely done, and congrats getting all 3 done in time.
