You can learn how to crochet amigurumi.

It isn’t rocket science or brain surgery or any of those other technical skills that take decades to perfect.

Do you remember learning how to ride a bike? At first it looked overwhelming to you as a small child. It seemed like it was only for the big kids in the neighborhood, not little ole you.

With some encouragement (and maybe even some prodding) from an adult you hesitantly got on the bike. Did yours have streamers coming from the handlebars and a big pink banana seat like mine did?

Maybe you wobbled. Maybe you fell and gotten a skinned knee. Don’t worry though, that’s not going to happen when learning how to crochet amigurumi. The important point is that you kept getting back up and faced your obstacles.

In no time, you were pedaling as fast as you could go with a big grin on your little face. Embrace your inner child and her willingness to try new things….oh and go grab your crochet hook.

Princess Bernadette Bear – Free Crochet Pattern!


My grandmother, Bernice, was an avid collector of unique teddy bears. When she passed away in 1997 I became the proud beneficiary of the collection that brought her so much joy. Every Christmas I display them on my rustic piano with candles and holiday decor. The little bears seem to come to life and bring my family the very same happiness.

The idea for Princess Bernadette Bear was born from my love of my grandmother and her teddies.  Bernadette is sweet, statuesque and simple! I created her with the beginner in mind. The only prerequisite skills are being able to make a magic ring, single crochet, and double crochet.

I also made three videos to help with sections that beginners might find tricky –
