Have a very blessed and Merry Christmas, everyone 🙂  May these teddies bring some warmth, joy and love into your homes this season!  I would love to see your versions of these teddies on your tree, so please send me photos of your work through my e-mail (all_about_ami@hotmail.com), facebook page or twitter!

[Update #1: People have been sending me photos of their own teddy ornaments, and I’ve compiled them all in a Crochet Corner post!  Check out everyone’s own rendition of my teddy ornaments here.]

[Update #2: Anne of “A Gamer’s Wife” has modified my pattern using thicker, worsted weight yarn.  She has clearly laid out her edits in her blog post here.  Check it out if you want your ornaments to remain the original size but you want to use thicker yarn!]

[Update #3: I’ve added a “Bunny Ornament” to this collection, and you can check out the step-by-step blog post and free pattern HERE!]
