FO Friday: A bear.... necessity?

Hello all.  I'm so happy that it's Friday! How about you? This weekend we get to put up our Christmas tree - I'm quite excited about this, although I am sure that's probably because I've forgotten the realities of dressing a tree with a team of "helpers". 

We always have 'The' tree in the sitting room but last year I also got a mini artificial one for the children so they could add their own little decorations and trinkets without fear of prickles, or the whole thing crashing down on them,  so when I saw this pattern on Little Cotton Rabbits blog I knew I had to make one for them - they do love things that have been made at home.

With a standard sized crayon for scale. 
As usual, my sewing let me down, and her little eyes are a bit too close together, but I think she's quite cute anyway (if a little portly). She'll be in her new home soon and I'll be sure to post some pictures over the weekend. 

(Edited to add: I should have mentioned that due to the 2.5mm needles and 4 ply yarn, this actually took a couple of hours to make. If you're planning to make one, don't be fooled by the minuscule size and keep your kids hanging around waiting for it, wait until they are in bed!!)

I have a load of things to get done today, so it's time to crack on. As usual, I'm joining in with Tami's Amis, and there's lots more to read there. 

I do wish you all a wonderful weekend - watch out for that full moon tomorrow!
