A charming handmade gift for my darling niece on her birthday – a mini felt plush bear with her sidekick bunny in a mint tin house (complete with a pillow and sleeping bag). If you want to make one – and who wouldn’t? – you’ll find the pattern here. I used a mini pompom for the bear’s tail for extra cuteness. And if you don’t want a sleeping bear, you can substitute buttons for the embroidered eyes.
