Thanksgiving and Crochet cheating

I took a few days off from Bento for Thanksgiving. We don’t celebrate in the UK, but I always book time off from work to spend it with Mr Kuma on Skype and this year we had the baby bears too.

So no work lunch means no bento.

It did give me time to finish off the crochet bear I started (see post ).
The orginal was supposed to be a white bear, but my mine was off white to start of with and then got handled a lot while I fiddled and unpicked things and that was before I spilled coffee. So in the end I thought I would borrow from Aki Kondo and make the bear into Korilakkuma as much as possible.


I was quite please by the results, although any one who knows crochet will see I cheated and did a rib stitch instead of a proper single crochet, as I was out of practice.

I am doing the next one properly:
