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.
