Bear Face Motif or Bear Applique – Free Crochet Pattern


Bear Face Motif or Bear Applique

I just love a cute crochet motif or crochet applique as some call it. What else allows you to crochet something easy and plain then add a cute or wow factor on top of it! And when you make it separate like this, it allows you to change the color of the bear to your own needs.


This Free Crochet pattern teaches how to crochet a cute Bear Face Motif that can be used on hats, afghans squares, front of sweaters, hats or anything you can think of!
