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 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.  

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.

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.

You can get this amazing, squishy yarn in our Sleepy Bear Crochet Kit along with the detailed digital PDF pattern.  This thoughtful kit was put together by local yarn stores, so you can feel good about your purchase and your new pillow!

Makerdrop.com is a community of small businesses that are makers just like you. And they package up every order with care. So a purchase through Makerdrop keeps giving to your community of makers.You can grab the Sleepy Bear Kit here. It comes with 7 skeins of Encore Mega Yarn  in colors 6007, 0639,and 0208 as shown in the pattern.

We’re so glad you’re a part of this community, and we can’t wait for you to make this adorable pattern out of this incredible yarn.

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 rnds 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 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.
