Teddy Bear Toddler Tote Crochet Pattern
Here it is, ladies and gentlemen! As promised, one spanking new crochet pattern: the Teddy Bear Toddler Tote.
I think it passed the toddler test. I was able to give it to my niece personally (thanks to their surprise visit!). When I handed it to her she immediately took it and put it over her shoulder and next she put it in the back compartment of her doll stroller and took off. I’m telling you, she’s a smart cookie! Knows exactly what to do.
Now that I think about it, for being only 23 months old I should have left off the front flap for easier access to the inside, but I am happy with the way it turned out and, as I said, she’s smart and will get around it without too much trouble.

As always, if you run into any errors let me know so I can fix them. If you run into any problems or just need some basic help, also let me know, I will be glad to help!
Before I even finished this one I had an idea for a second one. I’m thinking a panda this time… But first I have to finish the baby blanket I am working on. My list of baby blankets to make for people grows before I can shorten it. Sigh. But I love to make them and I know the recipients appreciate it.
