The Perfect Bag Charm Bear

I’ve designed a few amigurumi bears in the past, all of which vary slightly in their design and body shape. The amazing thing to me about amigurumi is that there can be so many variations in the physical form of an animal, but still recognizably look like that animal!

For this version, I really wanted to create a miniature sized bear, but with an oversized head and separate body (compared to my mini polar bear pattern). I was inspired by some cute cartoon drawings I found online with these proportions, and I couldn’t want to realize them in amigurumi form.

The main reason why I decided on these small proportions was that I wanted this bear to be able to be a constant companion in the form of a bag charm or keychain. All you have to do is add a lobster clasp and hook it through the top to take your bear with you everywhere you go!

I love how the finished proportions look on this tiny bear, and I could definitely see it being scaled up with DK or even worsted weight yarn.

When creating this bear, I also decided that I wanted to add a few small accessories. I’ve been experimenting with this with my Violet doll, and I realized that adding one or two miniature clothing items to any amigurumi is a great touch.

I decided I wanted to give Cinnamon a little tuxedo, and decided to realize that in the form of a cute top hat and mini bowtie.

Fluffy Yarn for a Fluffy Bear

When I designed this teddy bear I knew that I wanted it to be fluffy and fuzzy, so I opted for Wool and the Gang’s Feeling Good Yarn. If you’ve ever touched this yarn before, you know that the yarn is heavenly in how soft it is to touch and feel. It’s 70% baby alpaca, which puts it on the pricey side, but it was the texture that I wanted so I felt that it was worth it.

There are also lots of colors so you can make Cinnamon in any colorway you want! In fact, one of my upcoming projects is a bunny in the same body shape as Cinnamon, but in a pink purple blend.
