When you’re little you can never have too many sweet, snuggly friends. Especially when it comes to bedtime.  If your child has trouble falling asleep, the Sleepy Bear Crochet Pillow is the perfect companion.

This cozy crochet pillow is the perfect crossover between a pillow and a stuffed animal. The base of the Sleepy Bear Pillow is made from a round cushion case, crocheted in grey but you can easily coordinate your pillow to match your child’s bedroom.

Then, with two little ears added on top, a cream-colored snout, and some sweet embroidery on the face, your sleepy bear friend can really come to life. Learn how to crochet your own teddy bear pillow for the little one in your life. 

And to make this pillow extra snuggly, we’ve made ours using the Plymouth Encore Mega Yarn. It’s a chunky machine-washable acrylic/wool blend perfect for patterns that need some extra squish.

Assembly and finishing:

Lay one of the body pieces with the right side facing, and lay the mouthpiece just under the center round of the body, and pin in place. Use the tail to whip st on, weaving in all ends on the wrong side. Place one of the nose pieces in the center of the mouth, and using an 18” piece of light pink yarn, whip st in place and embroider mouth line by going 4 rounds down, and following the curve of the round for 4 st in either direction of the initial line.

Place the cheek piece in a straight line with the nose, about 5 inches from either side and whip st in place.

Mark with st markers where the beginning end of eyes will be, along with the lowest point in the center. Using the black yarn, embroider eyelids and 7 eyelashes, as shown in the photo.

Place both body pieces together with rs facing, and whip st edges closed, leaving a 3” gap off-center of the top. Turn rs out, and fill with polyfill stuffing. Finish whip st to close, and weave in ends.

Center ears with about 3” of space between, and whip st in place. Weave in all ends.
