Making Bears and Dolls for Orphans!

If any of you knitters or crocheters would like to make some easy dolls and bears for wonderful children in orphanages, please take a look at my patterns and info, and help the Kaiizen Foundation today.  There are knitted patterns for dolls and bears or crocheted patterns for both!

'CRAFTING ANGELS' is sending the Kaiizen Foundation, their first batch of toys and such, mid-May, so that the group can take them to a Swaziland orphanage in mid-June!  They also need baby blankets/quilts; hacky sacks, balls, hair pretties etc.

Here is the website with patterns and info:

Hug the ones you love today!

Hi Anonymous :)
With this bear it's just all about where you place your stitches to form the arms. If one is larger than the other, just start stitching closer to the edge. Although honestly, it doesn't really matter. None of us look perfectly 'even' either but we are still lovable :)
