Spring is here!
But Easter is only one week away, so let's do first things first and start with this little guys.
This is a really quick and easy pattern, and just like my tiny mountains bears, it's completely no-sew! High five! One piece! Easy peasy!
They're super cute on their own, and I was pretty pleased to find out that they fit perfectly in the plastic easter eggs you can find all over the place right now.
Stay tuned for the coordinating play set in the next few weeks, and happy Easter!
