Teddy Bears were developed in the early years of the 20th century and named after Theodore Roosevelt! Teddy Bears quickly became popular with children.

With grandchildren coming along, I know they will have their share of them as well. So this week let’s get on with the sharing of free crochet patterns-Teddy Bears!
