I bet you were thinking it would look like a real mushroom! (haha). Well, to me it has the shape of a mushroom, and that is why I refer to my little bear as a mushroom bear.
This particular mushroom bear loves (and I mean LOVES) to fold paper cranes. Ever since discovering out how to make them, he's been folding them nonstop! His goal is to fold 1000 colourful paper cranes, and have them flying all around him. So far, he has completed 17 paper cranes, and one turtle (because he thinks that turtles are cute). What a little cutie ^^ He is able to sit on his own without falling over (unless you tip him over, but he doesn't like that very much). He can even hold paper cranes in his hands :)
This particular mushroom bear was crocheted out of a combination of 3 different yarns:
- a bulky natural bamboo yarn (super eco-friendly; wicker colour; 86% bamboo, 12% acrylic, 2% polyester)
- a bulky acrylic wool blend yarn (earthy brown colour; 75% acrylic, 25% wool)
- a bulky acrylic yarn (cream/ivory colour; 100% acrylic)
He's got 4.5mm safety eyes, an embroidered nose (brown cotton embroidery thread), and he is stuffed with high quality 100% polyester fiberfill toy stuffing which is non-allergenic :D:D:D
I love this little mushroom bear to bits. I think I will name him ... Jiyong! YES I have given my bear a korean name :) yay~
SO now for important stuff.
As I have only made one bear (currently), it will only be available in my Etsy shop as made to order (for now). But soon I hope to have more quantity in stock so that they will ship out right away, rather than 4 days later. So as a made to order item, it will take approximately 4 to 7 days (after payment has been processed) for the bear to be made and ship out to your address. Due to the handmade nature of these bears, slight variations may occur from the original, BUT I will try my hardest to make them look as similar as possible. Feel free to give your bear a different name if you wish. I also plan on having different colours made available soon, so I will blog about it when that happens :)
