Stage 3/finale of trying out a youTube Teddy Bear drawstring bag tutorial

Thank you for the likes for the previous two blog posts :). You really made my day :D.

I finally finished making the drawstring bag.

A quick preview of the different components… stage3pieces

So far so good…

End product. Ta da! Open and shut view.

The bag, as suspected, was too small. A few more rows would have made a big difference. The end product looked a bit more like a monkey than a teddy bear haha.

I followed most instructions except for the mouth/lip lines. Decided to go with curved lines.


Despite the size of the bag, I am still quite happy with how it looks. The vibrant colours help, too. I suppose. Anyway, I’ve decided to give it to my nephew as a present. Hope he likes it!

It’s been a fun little project to do. Looking forward to the next one 🙂

One ear and the bag which looks a little small! We’ll see what happens

In the meantime,

Here’s Eva Cassidy’s rendition of “Honeysuckle Rose”

Her voice is amazing.

Trying out a youTube Teddy Bear Drawstring Bag Tutorial


I found this lovely youTube crochet tutorial by Jayda InStitches. It has been very easy to follow, and here is where I am up to …




That’s the bottom and the connecting part of the drawstring bag done and the next part of the bag started. I have started building the bag with rows of single crochets from here on.
If this turns out well, I am hoping to gift the end product to my beautiful nephew who is turning two.
